Epistemological and learning beliefs of trainee teachers studying Education
AbstractThis research study focuses on the epistemological beliefs held by Education students. Our sample was made up of 117 Education students from a university in Chile, who voluntarily participated in our study. They were administered Schommer-Aikins Epistemological Questionnaire (1995) and also interviewed. We concluded that participants indistinctly showed a sophisticated and unsophisticated behaviour in each of the dimensions, which confirms the multidimensional approach that the author of the questionnaire claims regarding epistemological beliefs.
