Utilizing the systematic literature review method, this paper analyzed past professional development programs aimed at enhancing science and technology teachersâ€™ pedagogical content knowledge to provide prospects for local interventions. Lesson study, teacher-mentoring, and school-based collaborative curriculum development were the most locally appropriate, demographically, and contextually. However, they can afford a few participants only. This setback can be offset by supporting the interventions with a partly technology-based delivery platform. The study concluded that an innovative intervention must be designed for local use because it must be acceptable to the countryâ€™s situation along all stages of implementation. The intervention must be collaborative, not too multi-faceted, and flexible enough to use quality materials and human resources without compromising efficiency and effectiveness.
