This session would potentially be of interest to tutors of science education in HEIs, or those working as mentors and tutors for science student teachers in schools. I am currently completing my doctorate in education (EdD). I carried out an intervention with secondary science student teachers to try to support their development. This process involved analysis of critical incidents and the diagnostic teaching cycle, as well as action learning. Some of the ideas that may be explored are: Are student science teachers held back by not being very reflective? What were the main teaching issues that science student teachers raised? Implications for practice: Should everyone adopt the teaching intervention I used? How else might we better support student science teachers to ensure their success?
