Publication Year:

Abstract (2. Language): 
The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of self-efficacy on the lifelong learning tendencies of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies (CEIT) pre-service teachers. The second aim was to determine the level of lifelong learning tendencies of those pre-service teachers and to investigate how it differs with respect to some variables. Data were collected from the pre-service teachers of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies (CEIT) department of a large foundation university located in Istanbul, Turkey. CEIT students’ lifelong learning tendency was assessed by Coskun Diker and Demirel’s (2010) 27-item Lifelong Learning Tendency Scale. Students’ self-efficacy was measured by a 17-item scale which was originally developed and validated by Sherer and Adams (1983) and translated into Turkish by Yildirim and Ilhan (2010). The data was analyzed using IBM SPPS Statistics 19. The results of this study may give guidance to administrators, faculty members and consultants who wish to empower students to manage their own learning and help them develop more positive attitudes towards lifelong learning.
