Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate teaching practice course in terms of student teachers. The study was conducted in accordance with sequential exploratory mixed method design. Sample of the study was selected in two stages. The quantitative data were collected from 1129 student teachers in four education faculties. As for qualitative data, they were obtained by focus group interviewing with 24 student teachers training in Yuzuncu Yil University. A survey and a focus group interview form were used as data collection tools. The quantitative data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and qualitative data were analyzed using descriptive technique. Some of the results are like that: The time allotted for teaching practice is not enough, schools in which teaching practice was applied don't have appropriate conditions, partners of teaching practice don't have enough qualifications and the student teacher weren't provided enough information prior to the teaching practice process. For all that, teaching practice course has generally led to positive outcomes.
