Implementation and evaluation of an EFL teacher training program for non-formal education settings

Sezen Arslan,İsmail Hakkı Mirici,Hüseyin Öz.


This study aims to implement and evaluate a suggested in-service teacher training program for English language teachers in non-formal education institutions. In doing this, 2-week online training program was designed considering the professional needs of the teachers and implemented with a follow-up. Pre and posttests, self-assessment scales and lesson observations were utilized in order to compare teacher knowledge and behaviors before and after the training. In addition, those instruments, feedback forms were also received from the teachers in order to figure out their attitudes towards the implemented program. Findings from the study showed that the program had a significant impact on teacher knowledge and behaviors. Although the majority had a positive attitude towards the program, some teachers suggested that a face-to-face training program be held and that the length could be extended.

Key words: EFL teachers, INSET, non-formal education, professional development
