Abstract

It could be suggested that the covid-19 pandemic, which initially emerged in China and then affected the whole world, negatively affected several aspects of life since it halted life globally. One of these aspects is education. Education that usually takes place in various learning environments at schools had to be conducted from a distance after the pandemic. This requirement imposed certain responsibilities on students, teachers and parents, who are among the most important variables in education, and also led to problems in educational activities. Due to these developments, the present study aimed to analyze the educational activities conducted in Turkey during the pandemic. The analyses were conducted on the views of the participating teachers assigned with the purposive sampling method. The main objective of this work done is to analyze the outbreak of Covid-19 process and the remote training activities regarding teachers in Turkey. In the present qualitative study, the data collected with a semi-structured interview form developed by the authors are presented in the findings section based on the sub-themes analyzed with content analysis. The current study findings revealed that the teachers of various disciplines who were included in the study group stated remarkable views on the education conducted during the covid-19 pandemic. Recommendations are also presented based on the study findings.
