Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the effect of the teaching practice course on pre-service elementary teachers’ TISE level. In this research both qualitative and quantitative research methods were used. The participants were 43 pre-service elementary teachers from a state university in Turkey. In the quantitative part of the study, these pre-service elementary teachers filled in the TISE scale before and after the teaching practice course. Also, semi-structured interviews were carried out with 13 voluntary pre-service elementary teachers about the sources of TISE. The results indicated that the TISE level of pre-service elementary teachers was increased during the teaching practice course. The sources of pre-service elementary teachers’ TISE was discussed based on the sources of self-efficacy stated by Bandura.
