Abstract

This study describes the relationship between pedagogical formation training students’ views on teaching styles and the phenomenon of pedagogical literacy, which is regarded to be of crucial importance for the teaching profession. Relational survey method was used to determine the relationship between the study variables. The sample group consisted of 203 students enrolled in a variety of departments but attending pedagogical formation training during the 2017-2018 academic year. For collecting data, two different scales were administered. The first scale was Grasha’s Teaching Style Scale and the other was the “Pedagogical Literacy Skills Scale”. Pearson product-moment correlation technique and multiple regression analysis were used to define the relationship between these variables. It was found out that students prefer the facilitator model the most, while formal authority is the least preferred teaching style. Moreover, males prefer the formal authority and delegator teaching styles considerably more than females. Also, female students find themselves strikingly proficient about the teaching-learning skills compared to their male peers. As for the relationship between teaching styles and pedagogical literacy, the highest relation exists between “teaching-learning” in the pedagogical scale and “facilitator teaching style” in Grasha’s scale. On the other hand, the lowest relation is found between “classroom management” skill and “formal authority style” at significant level in positive direction. As a conclusion, it is thought that effectiveness of pedagogical literacy on teachers’ teaching styles deserves much attention. Thus, future research should deal with the issue accordingly.
