An investigation of primary school teachers' and principals' attitudes towards online teacher training
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the attitudes of primary school teachers and principals towards online learning. 82 primary school principals and teachers completed an online questionnaire examining attitudes towards online learning. Results revealed a negative attitude towards online learning and qualifications obtained online. Hypothesis 1, which stated that primary school teachers will have a hierarchy of perspectives towards qualifications obtained online and offline, was supported as primary school teachers believe that online course graduates are not as qualified as traditional course graduates. Hypothesis 2, which stated that primary school principals would choose a person with a qualification from a traditional course before a person with an equivalent online course qualification, was supported with nearly three-fifths of principals reporting that they would recruit a traditional course graduate before an online course graduate.
