Summary

As a background paper for discussion at the 1973 National Annual Convention of the Association for the Education of Teachers of Science, analyses are made concerning the present status and future development of science teacher education. Shortcomings in current teacher preparation are discussed in connection with recent changes in the economy and society. Professional aspects of science teaching are described as the main concern in the future teacher preparation program. Educational objectives should be directed toward the understanding of (1) the changing character of science, (2) the place of science in society, (3) the nature of knowledge in science, (4) the learning of science based knowledge, (5) the philosophical basis of science education and the rationale for curriculum choices, and (6) the valuation of goals and similar topics. Capability of generating insights into problems of teaching and knowledge in liberal arts and humanities are also required. Great efforts and support from outside disciplines are needed to help beginning teachers gain a personal sense of purpose and direction and a basis for intelligent action. Science teachers' responsibility as consumers of education research rather than as researchers is stressed. The author indicates that "new" science teacher education is likely to be formulated by teacher educators rather than by forces outside the profession. (CC)
