Abstract


The purpose of the study is to reveal the self-evaluations of the prospective teachers on two-and three-dimensional
visual teaching materials they have designed in the field of the pedagogical formation education. A qualitative
research method was used in the study. The study group was chosen from the prospective teachers who were enrolled
in the pedagogical formation education at a state university in Turkey. A questionnaire consisting of three open-ended
questions was used. In this questionnaire, the prospective teachers were asked questions about the strengths and
weaknesses of the instructional materials they designed and what kind of arrangements they would make if they
designed the material again. The data were analyzed descriptively. The views of the prospective teachers on the
strengths of the instructional materials they design are collected under seven themes: the characteristics of us, the
effect on learning the relation with the subject, the preparation and construction process, the gains to the learners, the
presentation of the information and conformity. The opinions of the prospective teachers about the weaknesses of the
teaching materials have been collected under five themes. In general, it is seen that the arrangements to be made in
the case of redesign are expressed in terms of the weaknesses.
