Science Teacher Trainees' Microteaching Experiences: A Focus Group Study
Gödek, Yasemin
Educational Research and Reviews, v11 n16 p1473-1493 Aug 2016
Microteaching is widely used in many countries to prepare trainees for the complexity of the actual classroom environment but has limited use in Turkey. The main objective of this action research was to evaluate and increase in the effectiveness of microteaching, and determine the contribution of microteaching to trainees from their own perspectives through their reflections on their own experiences. Semi-structured focus group interview was carried out with 10 trainees out of 55 trainees who attended microteaching practices. The results ensured that against all the odds of microteaching, it is worthy to use microteaching practices to integrate theory and practice and train qualified teachers. Instead of just concentrating on its visible limitations, it would be better to concentrate on its advantages.
