Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v12 n3 p2139-2148 Sum 2012
In this study, development of THU in the world and in Turkey was briefly mentioned and THU was assessed with respect to the views of prospective teachers and instructors about this course, which has been launched in Turkey in the 2008-2009 academic year. The sample in this study consists of five prospective teachers who are students of the College of Education in Ondokuz Mayis University. Criterion sampling strategy, one of the purposeful sampling methods, is the data collection method for the study. The prospective teachers and instructors participating in the study stated that CSL not only strengthened the tie between society and student but also contributed to professional development, human relations and leadership. Some important problems exist with the implementation of a CSL course. These problems originate with the university, the institutes, and the course instructors.
