The Influence of Experience on Pre-Service and Novice Teachers--The Croatian Perspective
Škugor, Alma; Sablic, Marija
European Journal of Teacher Education, v41 n2 p157-168 2018
This paper researches students' and teacher trainees' personal experience of student-centred teaching during their education in grades 1-4 of primary school. The questionnaire comprised 45 statements and was completed by 403 primary school teacher trainees and 535 students (future teachers) at Faculties of Teacher Education in Croatia. The research results show that students do not have sufficient prior experience that they could use as inspiration in their future teaching practice and that in the course of their education they were mainly exposed to traditional approach to teaching. The majority of teacher trainees are aware of the importance of student-centred teaching although they cannot fully give up the control of students and educational process. This research opens up the issue of a paradigm change within the teaching system and education in Croatia as well as the issue of changes within education and professional development of teachers.
