Assessment of the Opinions and Practices of Student Teachers on Micro-Teaching as a Teaching Strategy
Göçer, Ali
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v9 n2 p33-46 2016
Purpose of study is to ascertain the effectiveness of micro-teaching, a training technique used to help student teachers establish a strong pedagogical background. Student teachers were required to give classroom-lessons in a natural school environment, to enable them to convert their knowledge into respective skills. Accordingly, within the scope of Special Teaching Methods, 16 Turkish student teachers were selected on a volunteer basis. Activities of the student teachers were monitored in the class environment, and the teachers were interviewed at the end of these activities. A videotape of the lesson was then viewed in the class environment, and any necessary assessment was made therein. Teacher responses to interview questions, and data obtained from monitoring were subjected to content analysis. Micro-teaching, which was conducted in consideration of instructor feedbacks, was helpful in overcoming the fears and concerns of student teachers. Candidates commented that micro-teaching represented a significant opportunity for gaining experience.
