The Changing Nature of Science Teacher Education: An Interview with Keith Lucas
Science Education Review, v1 n1 p32-37 2002
This issue of "Science Education Review" presents an interview with Keith Lucas, Associate Professor in the School of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education at Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Keith Lucas' research interests include: the construction of science meaning by students; science learning in informal settings such as interactive science centres; and the professional development of teachers and teacher educators, particularly in developing countries. Regular teaching involvement in recent years has included science curriculum for pre-service and graduate students, the design and teaching of Faculty-based research methods courses, and supervision of candidates at masters and doctoral levels. He has served as Editor of the "Australian Science Teachers' Journal," Assistant Editor of "Research in Science Education," a member of the Editorial Board and the International Committee of the National Association for Research in Science Teaching, and as a regular manuscript reviewer for the "Journal of Research in Science Teaching" and "School Science and Mathematics." In 1991 and again in 2000, he was awarded the Australian Science Teachers Association Distinguished Service Award. In this interview Keith Lucas shared his views on 35 years as a teacher educator and the changes he has witnessed within the professional development preparation of pre-service science teachers.
