Teacher candidate needs in online hybrid program


Journal Article


Robinson, S. D.


This case study examines the emotional and psychological needs of three teacher candidates enrolled in an online hybrid teacher preparation program. The online hybrid model contains courses that combine face-to-face and synchronous online meetings. Data are derived from emotion diary entries and semi-structured interviews. Results suggest that face-to-face classes promoting the development of a caring cohort community are essential for establishing trust that may transfer to online seminars as candidates discuss their challenges, struggles, and successes during student teaching.
