Tan, Choon Keong, Nguyen, B.D., Lee, Kean Wah, Kang, Hwa Choo


This study aimed to examine the impact of the design teams approach on preservice teachers’ technological pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK). Using a mixed-method design, the researcher implemented the investigation among 62 teacher candidates whose major was Primary English Teaching at a university of foreign language studies in Central Vietnam. All of the participants attended a course named “Technology in Education”, which was adapted based on Johnson’s design teams approach model (2014). The data were collected using pre- and post-TPACK Survey, a TPACK Rubric (TIAI) and semi-structured interviews. The findings indicated that this design teams approach had a significant impact on the participants’ TPACK, particularly its technology-related knowledge domains (TK, TPK, TCK, TPACK). The result was also confirmed by the teacher candidates’ positive responses about their perceptions towards this instructional approach.
