Description The task of current educational system is to give all students competences they will need to prosper in global economic competition. However, students very often consider learning content as useless for their everyday life. In the context of natural sciences, this is not only about the choice of learning content but also about the way in which science subjects are taught. Students are not usually able to connect knowledge from individual natural science subjects and to solve interdisciplinary problems so typical for everyday life. It could be one of important reasons of lack of student interest in study of natural sciences. However, teachers are not usually educated in interdisciplinary instruction and they do not know appropriate educational methods supporting interdisciplinarity. Inquiry based science education is one of suitable educational strategies for interdisciplinary teaching/learning. Research findings confirming the effectiveness of pre-service teacher education in interdisciplinary instruction using IBSE are presented.
