An investigation of student teachers' attitudes to the use of media triggered problem based learning

Angela Kit Fong Ma, John O'Toole, Michael Keppell


This study investigates how teacher education students responded to a particular suite of educational products that involved media based educational learning objects, and their attitudes to them in fostering student centred learning in general, and problem based learning in particular, with the ultimate goal of enhancing and improving the quality of teacher training. Two lines of inquiry have been followed throughout the investigation:
  1. to identify and describe student attitudes to the newly developed video rich PBL courseware for teacher education; and
  2. to explore how such educational courseware can be used, enhanced, and presented as examples of learning objects in actual teaching situations.
The implications and recommendations arising from the findings obtained in this research project will provide teacher educators with some initial insights when using similar media based products in teacher education.
