Introduction to Part III
In the theoretical framework that was developed for the VTB-Pro project (Walma van der Molen, de Lange and Kok 2009), three main pillars are mentioned as the desired outcomes of professionalization activities. These are: knowledge and skills with respect to science and technology, attitudes towards science and technology, and pedagogical skills for inquiry-based learning and learning by design. Part I and Part II of this book dealt with the first two of these pillars; Part III is related to, but does not fully cover the third pillar.
