In this research, teacher education and competencies are examined in the transition to the digital transformation process in Northern Cyprus.
In addition, tools for measuring digital competencies and teacher-oriented changes will be introduced.
It is thought that determining the competencies of teachers and the tools measuring these competencies within the scope of the digitalization process will be effective in ensuring quality in education on behalf of Northern Cyprus in the future and will shed light on future research.
In the literature review, although the number of studies of Northern Cyprus in measuring the digital competence of teachers/teacher candidates’ is remarkable, it has been determined that there are not enough with respect to the importance of the subject.
Considering the rapid transition and adaptation to the digital transformation process, especially during the pandemic period, since teachers are the most important part of digital education, it is foreseen that more qualitative or quantitative research is needed to interpret and measure digital competencies.
