Investigating the Learning Progressions of Science Teachers

Learning progressions (LPs) are theoretical models of how learners develop expertise in a domain over extended periods of time. There is currently little research on the ways in which teachers’ knowledge, understandings change over time systematically and in particular, studying a related model of learning progression can bring a different perspective to this research area with probable suggestions for implication as well.
