Probing the Amalgam: The Relationship between Science Teachers' Content, Pedagogical and Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Neumann, Knut; Kind, Vanessa; Harms, Ute
International Journal of Science Education, v41 n7 p847-861 2019
This Special Issue aims to present evidence about the relationships between content knowledge (CK), pedagogical knowledge (PK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK); the development of these types of knowledge in novice and experienced secondary science teachers; and how CK, PK and/or PCK impact students' learning. Since Shulman's introduction of PCK as the feature that distinguishes the teacher from the content expert, researchers have attempted to understand, delineate, assess and/or develop the construct in pre- and in-service teachers. Accordingly, empirical findings are presented that permit further discussion. Outcomes permit post-hoc examination of a recent, collectively described, 'consensus' model of PCK, identifying strengths and potential issues. As we will illustrate, the relationship between CK, PK and PCK is central to this; that is, probing the hypothesis of pedagogical content knowledge as an 'amalgam' of content and pedagogical knowledge.
