Preservice Teachers’ Perceptions of Learning Science Methods through Hybridizing Asynchronous and Traditional Experiences
This study addresses the research question about preservice teachers’ perceptions toward online learning after completing an elementary science methods course. Specifically, their perceptions about utilizing an online science methods curriculum versus a traditional methods curriculum. Survey and focus group data indicate that the preservice teachers valued and wanted more online experiences, but not as a total replacement of traditional methods experiences. Furthermore, using the video cases made improved comprehension possible because all preservice teachers could watch the same learning experience. The author concludes that online video cases will likely continue to provide instructors with the ability tangentially to capture elementary classroom learning environments and elementary student learning while working with preservice teachers.
