The Study of Current and Desired Curriculum Content for Educating Technology-oriented Teachers from Viewpoints of Experts, Faculty Members and University Students

The purpose of this study is to identify the characteristics of the curriculum content for training technology-oriented teachers. In this study, efforts have been made to study and compare the gap between the current and the desired situation in order to provide practical suggestions for improving the curriculum of Teacher Training University. Mixed-methods research with exploratory design was used to conduct the research. In the qualitative section, the data was collected through a semi-structured interview with faculty members, using a purposive sampling method in order to determine the desired situation. In the quantitative section, the questionnaires were distributed among 249 faculty members and 359 university students. The results of the qualitative section indicated that the desired content for technology-oriented teachers should include five features, including mixed content design, flexibility, consistency with the goals, technological approach governing the content, and practicability. In the quantitative section of the research, however, the results showed that from faculty members and students’ point of view, the status of the curriculum content at Teacher Training University is not suitable for educating technology-oriented teachers.
