Abstract: 
This small-scale study explores
professional development (PD) designs for
history teachers in Singapore and proposes
a PD model that uses a job-embedded
collaborative approach. Drawing from
research on effective PD and data gathered
from questionnaires and interviews
conducted with participants involved in a
PD workshop, this paper considers the
value of collaborative PD approaches
aimed at promoting and encouraging
historical thinking. The authors conclude
that PD history workshops that are
carefully designed to support the
development of teachers’ professional
knowledge bases, and ones that offer
opportunities for teachers to actively
translate conceptual ideas into concrete
teaching strategies, are critical in
transforming beliefs and practices that can
work towards more robust historical
thinking and discourse in the classroom.
