This workshop illustrates the roles Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) and Content Knowledge for Teaching (CKT) play in the professional education of teachers of physics. One can think of PCK and CKT as unique knowledge domains that distinguish teachers of a particular subject from content specialists. They both are amalgams of content and pedagogy. The former is a more theoretical construct and the latter is something we can observe and assess in the classroom. We will provide a general framework of thinking about PCK and CKT, examples of tasks of teaching in which CKT can be clearly identified, and assessments that allow us to evaluate the development of CKT in pre-service and in-service teachers.
