The NGSS present a bold vision for science education that is challenging teachers to change their practice. Given the shifts in teaching and learning envisioned by the NGSS, it is inevitable that change is also required in universities that prepare teachers. Join NSTA’s Pre-service Teacher Education Director and members of the National Association for Research in Science Teaching as they discuss Supporting the Implementation of NGSS through Research: Pre-service Teacher Education and how they are acting on these recommendations in teacher education.
