Epistemic network modeling of pre-service teacher’s STEM teaching competence through collaborative
learning design

Bian Wu

Associate Professor, East China Normal University  

Pre-service teacher training is crucial to guarantee the quality of STEM education. However, how teachers develop STEM teaching competence through collaborative learning design remains unclear. This study investigated high and low-performing groups who worked together to draft STEM lesson plans in tutor-guided online design meetings. An epistemic network modeling approach was employed to compared their STEM learning competence networks drawn from conversation. The findings revealed that there are significant differences in the networks between high and low-performing groups, which may contribute to the quality of their STEM lesson plans. Implications of fostering STEM teaching competence development are discussed.
