The initial data were collected by a questionnaire from 14 special education student teachers, after participating in a Checkpoint Leonardo: Stealth – project to develop teaching for cross - subject science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) learning sequence. Three of the students were interviewed after the project. The main findings for improving teacher education are the perceived opposition of pupils’ parents towards PhBL and the variance of concerns that student teachers have towards realizing PhBL. These findings are used as the basis of an intervention in the following years’ project - based teacher education. ...
