Abstract


The aim of this study is to show the effect of micro-teaching technique applied to teacher candidates in pedagogical formation program in Turkish universities on the perception of professional self-efficacy. Unequalized experiment and quasi-experimental method with control group were used in the study. The study group of the study consisted of 55 prospective teachers studying in the 2018-2019 fall semester pedagogical formation program of the Faculty of Education of Mehmet Akif Ersoy University. The research data were collected through the Teacher Self-Efficacy Scale according to the pre-test post-test application model. In the research, presentations were video-taped. The video footage was watched in the classroom and criticisms and discussions were made about how a better presentation could be. The course activities, in which each participant prospective teacher made three presentations during the activity period, were carried out for 12 weeks. According to the findings, the experimental group of teachers in terms of self-sufficiency beliefs see themselves more adequate than the control group. However, there was no differentiation between groups in the subdimension of self-efficacy.
