The Cooperative Learning Method in Teacher Training
Taspinar, Mehmet
International Journal of Educational Reform, v16 n1 p54-70 Win 2007
The modern education system aims at promoting the life quality of individuals, and it requires a philosophical perception and curriculum development approach in line with this aim. In this context, the basic philosophy is to teach people how to learn, have democratic attitudes, convene for teamwork, be able to use information, and think in a critical way. To achieve this goal, education programs should be developed on the basis of student-centered approaches. These programs require appropriate educational methods and techniques. The cooperative learning method is one of these methods. The purpose of this study was to compare cooperative learning with traditional methods (namely, the lecture method) in terms of student achievement as applied in the "Instruction to the Teaching Profession" course in the program of the Faculty of Technical Education in Firat University, Turkey. The research gives an opportunity for the implementation of the method in teacher training, and it helps teacher candidates to learn how to implement this method. (Contains 3 tables.)
