Bridging the Gap: Needs Assessment of Science Teacher In-Service Education in Turkey and the Effects of Teacher and School Demographics
Ogan-Bekiroglu, Feral
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v33 n4 p441-456 Nov 2007
Turkish science teachers' in-service needs and the effects of teacher and school demographic variables on these needs are examined in this study. In addition, major barriers that prevented science teachers from attending in-service programmes are investigated. The data for the research were gathered through a survey. This study shows that Turkish science teachers require more instructional materials, laboratory equipment, computers, and software and need in-service education to integrate these instructional facilities into their lessons. This study also indicates that teacher and school demographic variables have little significance in predicting science teachers' needs. (Contains 9 tables.)
