Ari Widodo, M.Ed. presents a professorship inaugural speech entitled “Improving Learning Quality and Student Learning Outcomes through Strengthening Pedagogical Content Knowledge”. In this Speech, he said that PCK is a specific competence which must be possessed by science teachers. By understanding PCK, Science was applied to describe the content outside Science.

To make an interactive lesson, the teachers have to understand the science content as well as science context comprehensively by understanding the students’ characteristics.
