Title:
A Physics Teacher Education Program in the Philippines
Description:
Many high-income countries experience great difficulty in attracting talented young people into physics teacher education (e.g. Smithers & Robinson, 2005). The USA and Canada even recruit science teachers in the Philippines which itself experiences a serious shortage of qualified and competent physics teachers. How can one develop an exemplary physics teacher education program and attract a critical mass of students? The Philippine program described below increased its enrollment from 1 to 30 students per year and provides some answers to this question.
