Abstract [en]

In this paper, based on PROFILES, a continuous professional development (CPD) program developed in Karlstad Sweden is presented. A main strategy was to incorporate the elements of (1) the existing laboratory teaching tradition and (2) the teachers’ group reflections on inquiry-based science teaching mentioned in Swedish curriculum (Lgr 11), besides offering possibilities to use new equipment and using PROFILES three-step teaching module as teaching support. This was to facilitate the teachers’ negotiation process between the key ideas of laboratory work existing in the Swedish teaching tradition/teaching practice and of laboratory inquiry-based teaching discussed in the international literature. The CPD program demonstrated the co-constructing process among the in-service science teachers and the CPD provider. The participants were 15 lower secondary teachers and the program lasted for forty hours distributed on the total of six workshops.
