Turkish Teachers' Use of the Outdoors as a Teaching Resource: Perceived Facilitators and Obstacles
Lane, Jennie F.; Ateskan, Armagan; Dulun, Öykü
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v17 n1 p14-28 2018
Several studies have investigated teachers' use of local environments. There has been limited research in Turkey about teacher perceptions of facilitators and obstacles. The current study received permission to use a survey conducted in the United States and to administer it to alumni of a teacher education program in Turkey. Compared to other studies, respondents to the current study reported that openness to teaching different teaching methods was a notable perceived facilitator for place-based education. This finding and others will be used by the teacher education program to improve place-based education in their methods courses.
