Yildirim, M. Cevat
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v12 n3 p1880-1886 Sum 2012
The purpose of this study was to make an evaluation on contribution of the basic training course to the professional development of probationary teachers. The study group consisted of 21 probationary teachers and 5 education supervisors in Sanliurfa province. The data were collected through semi-structured observation, focus group interview and semi-structured interview methods. Descriptive analysis and content-analysis techniques were applied to analyze the data. The findings showed that the basic training course had a positive effect upon the professional development of probationary teachers in terms of organizational socialization, enlightenment and psychological impact. However, it has been determined that there are some problems related to content, planning and organizing, the learning environment, and teaching and learning process. Therefore, it can be said that it is necessary to undertake new arrangements related to the basic training course by taking into account the requirements of probationary teachers and the circumstances that the probationary teachers will face.
