Title of Research Study:

Constructing Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) from teachers’ perspective: A case study of perceptions and developments of PCK in mentor science teachers Principal Investigator(s) (include faculty sponsor), UT affiliation, and Telephone

Number(s):

Eunmi Lee Science Education Center The University of Texas at Austin 512-232-6207 Funding source: N/A What is the purpose of this study?

The purpose of this study is to explore experienced science teachers’ perceptions of pedagogical content knowledge in teaching science and to redefine pedagogical content knowledge in terms of the perspectives of experienced science teachers who serve as mentors to beginning science teachers. The “Teachers as Mentors” program personnel are invited to participating in this study. In one-on-one interviews with participating mentor teachers and reviews of monthly reflective summaries of mentor teachers, I will conduct observations of the mentoring program activities for a better understanding of the program. I will also conduct semi-structured one-on-one interviews with the program personnel to gain an overview of the program’s mission in the professional development of science teachers.

What will be done if you take part in this research study?

By participating in this study, you will be interviewed regarding issues of pedagogical content knowledge and your teaching practices. In addition, observations of mentoring activities will be conducted several times during the study period as mutually agreed upon. At any time, you may withdraw your participation from the study, and this will not influence your relationship with the “Teachers as Mentors” program or Our Lady of the Lake University.

What are the possible discomforts and risks?

There are no known possible discomforts and risks associated with this research study at this time. If you wish to discuss the information above or any other risks you may experience, you may ask any questions now or call the Principal Investigator listed on the front page of this form.

What are the possible benefits to you or to others?

There are no potential benefits to be gained by you for participating in this study. This study may be beneficial to in-service science teachers participating in “Teacher as Mentors”, a teacher educator directing the mentoring program, and other programs regarding in-service science teacher education.

If you choose to take part in this study, will it cost you anything?

There are no costs to you to take part in this study.

Will you receive compensation for your participation in this study?

What if you are injured because of the study?

You will not receive compensation of your participation in this study.
