CONCEPTION AND IMPLANTATION OF AN EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH TO SCIENCE TEACHERS’ TRAINING IN FRANCOPHONE MINORITY COMMUNITIES: A THREE PHASES DESIGN RESEARCH
We describe an “experiential” approach to training for science teaching in minority settings in which future teachers are encouraged to explore their representations about science teaching and learning and to undertake a process of internal transformation of their representations in order to improve their pedagogical skills towards minority communities. In this regard, our research is part of a partnership between a faculty of education and a French high school in a minority setting.
