Abstract:In the recent decades honors education has experienced a big growth worldwide and also in the Netherlands. Now, Saxion University of Applied Sciences wants to establish professional development for honors teaching. The main goal of this research was to examine what is a good way to professionalize teachers in honors education at Saxion and secondly to make a first step in the design process for professional development in one aspect of honors teaching. For this, a design research has been conducted, consisting of four phases: context analysis, needs analysis, design construction and test/evaluation. For one aspect of honors teaching, promoting critical thinking of students, a first design was made, based on the 4C/ID model. The design of the first session was tested by a pilot and evaluated afterwards by a focus group consisting of the participants of the pilot. In conclusion, a good way to professionalize teachers in honors education at Saxion is to develop a shared vision on honors education and pay attention to the critical reflective attitude of honors teachers and to effect measurements of methods.
