The Opinions of Prospective Science Teachers Regarding STEM Education: The Engineering Design Based Science Education

Yasemin HACIOĞLU [1] , Havva YAMAK [2] , Nusret KAVAK [3]


The purpose of this study is to reveal the opinions of prospective science teachers regarding the engineering design based science education (EDBSE). Being conducted with 44 prospective 3rd grade science teachers by using the action research design, the study lasted for 5 weeks. At the end of the process, the teachers were asked to write their negative or positive views about process, suggestions, and their opinions regarding whether they will use it or not in the future. The qualitative data that were collected via the participant opinions form were analyzed with the content analysis. Prospective science teachers generally expressed positive opinions regarding the EDBSE and they stated that they would like to apply it in their classes in the future. On the other hand, the negative opinions or suggestions of prospective teachers regarding these practices were determined as having difficulties with time planning and management, classroom management, preparation of activities and designing of a convenient problem
