Teaching Practices Prior and Subsequent to 1998 in Turkey: Gazi University Vocational Education Faculty Case
Alpan, Gulgun; Erdamar, Gurcu
Educational Studies, v37 n3 p289-301 Jul 2011
This study aimed to compare teaching practice before and after 1998 in Turkey. Participants were 10 academics from the Department of Educational Sciences, Vocational Education Faculty, Gazi University and nine vocational high school cooperating teachers. Semi-structured interviews were analysed by using content analysis. The most significant findings were that the preparation, practice, observation, counselling and evaluation processes were more efficient before 1998 due to the smaller number of preservice teachers. After 1998, the cooperating teachers were legally included in the process and took more responsibility. A new model which combines the positive aspects of both practices is suggested in the article.
