It is very important to have pre-service teachers enhance actual content development skill for STEAM classes through deep understanding of the concept. Thus the purpose of the study is to explore the educational methodology for improving pre-service teachers' competence of designing STEAM classes. The research performed with 17 pre-service teachers from Y university and 15 from S university in 2015. It includes blended learning methodology mixing online and offline classes. The result revealed that the students' perception on and the materialization skill of the STEAM education was improved by the methods of Lesson Study and blended learning. A positive result also came out in the respect of the perception on teaching with technology.

제4차 산업혁명시대에 새로운 인재상으로 대두되는 융합적 인재의 양성을 위해, 예비교사들이 다양한 학문적 융합을 통해 진정한 융합의 본질을 이해하고 이를 위한 실질적인 교안의 개발을 도모하도록 하는 것은 매우 중요한 일이다. 이에 본 연구의 목적은 예비교사들이 차후 효과적인 융합교육을 수행할 수 있도록 대학수업에서 융합수업 구성능력을 향상시키는 교육방법을 연구하는 것이다. 2015년 Y대학교 17명과 S대학교 15명의 교육대학원 학생들을 대상으로 온라인과 오프라인을 혼합한 블렌디드러닝 형태의 연구절차를 진행하였다. 연구결과에 따르면, 상호소통기반의 Lesson Study 기법과 블렌디드러닝 수업을 통해 학습자들의 융합교육에 대한 인지도와 실제 능력이 효과적으로 제고되었으며 수학교육이나 융합교육에 관한 인식과 더불어 테크놀로지 활용에 대한 인식조사에서도 긍정적인 결과가 도출되었다.
