Abstract

This study explore the outcomes and issues of engaging pre-service teachers in action research to develop their understanding of student learning. Six pre-service teachers from the special education program were selected through a purposive sampling procedure. A qualitative data collection method via open-ended questionnaire and interviews was used to collect data. The responses to the open-ended questionnaire and interviews showed that pre-service teachers have developed some understanding of students' learning and aspects that relate to factors affecting their learning. They posit that instructional activities and intervention in the action research have taken into account students’ learning needs, interests, abilities and learning styles when designed. Their understanding however need to be reinforced to facilitate confidence in instructional practices later in schools. This will in turn boost the quality of teacher education in the nation in the long run.
