Turkish EFL Teachers’ Perceptions about the Transferability of an Online Call Training
Abstract: This study examined the factors affecting the transferability of a four-week online CALL training from the perspectives of eight Turkish L2 English in-service teachers receiving the training on a voluntary basis. Through self-report data collected via interviews and reflection reports, the researcher aimed to investigate the potential of online in-service CALL training for training language teachers to integrate CALL in their classrooms. The findings pointed at many factors that impinged on teachers’ CALL integration into their classes. These were related to (a) teachers’ perceived competence for transfer (b) the design of the training (c) issues related to MONE (Ministry of National Education) (d) technological infrastructure at schools and (e) a lack of supporting school environment for technology integration. Based on these findings, the researcher came up with a sequential procedure for online in-service CALL training, which is proposed to be a valuable means for the transfer of knowledge and skills gained in CALL training to a real language classroom.
