It is well-known that various crisis, conflict, and knowledge gap, coupled with the tension created by the recent educational reform have led to many great and prevalent challenges and opportunities in the science teaching community. Examples include the pioneering use of information technology in science teaching through computer-mediated experiments, Science-Technology-and-Society and constructivist’s  approach  towards  science  teaching,  inquiry-based  learning,  problem-based  learning, life-wide  learning,  metacognition  in  science  learning,  and  school-based  assessment  etc.  Therefore, Science Education is offered as an area of study via Directed Study mode in the EdD programme to prepare  future  leaders  in  Science  Education  with  both  theoretical  and  practical  competence  for initiating  and  implementing  educational  reform  at  the  school  and  community  level,  and  to  provide concrete research findings to inform and improve professional practice of the local and regional science teaching communities.
