Teaching with confidence: A pilot study of an intervention challenging pre-service education students’ field experience anxieties
Campbell, Marilyn A. & Uusimaki, Lisa S. (2006) Teaching with confidence: A pilot study of an intervention challenging pre-service education students’ field experience anxieties. International Journal of Practical Experiences in Professional Education, 9(1), pp. 20-32.
Most pre-service education students experience transient anxiety about becoming a teacher which decreases as knowledge and skills increase during training. However, some students express continuing anxiety which is distressing and inhibits their learning. This paper will discuss the results from a pilot study of an intervention called "Teaching with Confidence" that was offered to eighteen pre-service education students experiencing excessive anxiety about their teaching field experience at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. Results from the pilot study demonstrated the need and the demand for interventions that address students’ excessive anxiety about their practical experiences.
