Student Teachers’ Development of a Positive Attitude towards Research and Research Knowledge and Skills
This study investigated the perceived development of student teachers’ attitude towards research and the development of their research knowledge and skills, after participating in an introductory course in teacher research. The findings reveal that the students perceived a positive development in their attitude towards research, especially in their opinions of the importance of research and their own capability of conducting and using research. This study showed a significant difference, as students described teacher research as more important in comparison to the extent to which they were planning on carrying our research or using it in practice.
