Cekerol, Kamil; Bozkaya, Mujgan
Hacettepe University Journal of Education, v39 p109-120 2010
Academic counseling courses, in which learner support is provided in a face-to-face environment, maintain their importance and continuity since the beginning of the distance education system in Anadolu University. Academic counseling courses, which are carried out by getting support from various universities, are conducted by bringing the instructors that are experts in their fields and learners together in pre-arranged places out of working hours (in the evening on weekdays and at weekends) in 74 town centers. Learners could make use of this service by asking questions about the content they haven't understood, discussing it, and consulting the instructor. In this study, it is examined learners' attitudes towards learning environment and the instructors' behaviors in academic counseling. The findings indicate that those who tend to academic counseling courses have positive attitudes towards both the instructor and the environment. (Contains 3 tables.)
