Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the opinions of the preservice teachers about the micro teaching course. Study group consists of the preservice teachers who study at the Faculty of Education of a state university and have taken the micro-teaching course and study in the Foreign Languages Education Department. Qualitative research method was used in this study. Semi-structured interview technique, one of the qualitative research data collection techniques, was applied in the study. Content analysis was used in the analysis of the research data. Criterion sampling, one of the purposeful sampling types, was used for the study group included in the sample of this study. As a criterion, preservice teachers who took the optional micro teaching course were selected for the study. As a result of the study, the preservice teachers stated that the micro-teaching course helped gaining experience, increased professional skills and facilitated classroom management regarding the contribution of the education they received in the micro teaching course to the professional life. In addition, the preservice teachers who participated in the study expressed their views that they would like to take the micro teaching course again in the future.
