ABSTRACT

Lifelong learning tendencies of prospective teachers attending pedagogical formation certificate program were evaluated in this study. While prospective teachers receiving pedagogical formation at Bartın University and Mustafa Kemal University formed the population of the research, the sample consisted of 210 prospective teachers selected randomly from the population. Screening model was employed in the research. "Personal Information Form" and 1-6 Likert-type "Lifelong Learning Tendencies Scale" which consisted of 27 items and was developed by Diker-Coşkun [17] were applied as data collection tools. Reliability of the scale was tested, and Cronbach Alpha coefficient was found as 0.72. Independent samples t-test, one-way ANOVA and Dunnett's T3 test were employed in the study. As a result of the data analysis, lifelong learning tendencies of the prospective teachers receiving pedagogical formation were generally high. Furthermore, a statistically significant difference was observed based on variables of marital status, age, universities being studied at, job status and level of income. On the other hand, lifelong learning tendencies of the prospective teachers receiving pedagogical formation education did not have statistically significant differences by gender, having child/children, department of graduation and work experience.
