Innovations in Science Teacher Education is ASTE’s practitioner journal in which we share ideas, thoughts, and actions for educating all levels of teachers of science, both preservice and inservice. As we continue down this path as the new editors, we have several announcements Volume 7, Issue 4 of the Innovations in Science Teacher Education journal is now available along with all the issues from this past year. This issue includes discussions of equity and justice with preservice teachers, talk moves in the community, online methods, and an editorial about graduate degrees as professional development. In previous issues from this year, find ideas for educating science teachers on the nature of engineering, developing professional identities, remote methods of instruction, and more. Check out the issues for inspiration.
Submit your Manuscript to Innovations. Have you had success educating preservice or in-service teachers online or in hybrid situations? Have you found a new and effective way for clinical hours in our current situation? What about supporting science teachers’ use of culturally relevant practices? These are just a few ideas of many activities, ideas, or strategies you could submit to Innovations to share and inspire other science teacher educators. For author guidelines for submitting a manuscript to the Innovations journal, please visit the following webpage: https://innovations.theaste.org/submit/instructions-to-authors/
OR Write a Guest Editorial. Did you know each issue of Innovations in comments on a timely topic that is relevant to science teacher education? We would like to include ideas and commentaries from different perspectives, not just our own. These are commentaries, and editorials, not full articles so they are 500-750 words. If you are interested in contributing a guest editorial on a timely topic, please reach out to us with your idea.
