Developing teacher learning progressions for K-12 engineering education: teachers’ attitudes and their understanding of the engineering design
Mesutoğlu, Canan; Baran Jovanovic, Evrim; Department of Educational Sciences (2017)
Teachers at the K-12 level have a critical role in including engineering in their instruction. More teachers who are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to teach science using the engineering design process are needed. Aiming to build tools to measure and track the progress in teacher’ attitudes and their understanding of the engineering design process suggested the use of learning progressions approach. The purpose of the study was to develop two teacher learning progressions for K-12 engineer...
Developing Subject Matter Knowledge through Argumentation
Uygun, Tuğba; Akyüz, Didem (2019-02-01)
Argumentation, as a kind of classroom discourse, is beneficial for establishing mathematical knowledge taking place in classroom conversations. It can enhance learners’ development of subject matter knowledge. Hence, this case study was designed to examine the effect of argumentations on developing subject matter knowledge in detail in mathematics. For this purpose, discussions happened in a collective learning environment, designed based on problem-based learning and taking place in a six-week instructiona...

Tekin-Sitrava, Reyhan; Kaiser, Gabriele; Işıksal Bostan, Mine (2021-09-01)
Although the effects of professional development programs on teachers' noticing skills have attracted considerable interest among mathematics education researchers, little is known about the developmental process of prospective teachers' noticing skills within initial teacher education. This paper examines the extent to which prospective teachers' noticing skills are developed through the mathematics education courses taken within the mathematics teachers' education program using exemplarily the topic divis...
Developing teachers' health-related fitness knowledge through a community of practice: Impact on student learning
Hunuk, Deniz; İnce, Mustafa Levent; Tannehill, Deborah (2013-02-01)
The purposes of this study were twofold: to examine the effects of a community of practice (CoP) on (1) physical educators' and their students' health-related fitness content knowledge and (2) the physical educators' health-related fitness pedagogical content knowledge construction process. Twelve experienced physical education teachers (six in treatment, six in control group) and 278 of their students voluntarily participated in this study. Mixed method research with experimental pre-post design was used. ...
