This article documents the design and evaluation of a teacher development programme in computational thinking (CT) education. The results suggested that after taking a teacher development course (TDC), teachers enhanced their CT content knowledge; however, some teachers still did not have sufficient confidence in teaching CT in their classrooms. Subsequent modification to address this lack of confidence among this cohort of teachers is discussed.
