Abstract

Individual Innovativeness is one of the most appreciated attributes of 21st century skills needed in every field of daily life. Because of this appreciation, a lot of effort has been spent toward prompting individual innovativeness levels of both students and teachers in a teaching and learning environment via innovative practices. So this study aims to examine the relationship between prospective teachers' learning beliefs and their individual innovativeness state. The correlational survey method was used in this study and the sample of the study is comprised of 515 prospective teachers. The data of the study was collected via “Belief Scale toward Learning” developed by Bay et al. (2012) and “Individual Innovativeness Scale” developed by Hurt, Joseph, and Cook (1977) and adapted to Turkish by Kılıçer and Odabaşı (2010). The data of this study were analyzed with the help of the SPSS package program. Test of normality, descriptive statistics, correlational analysis and partial linear regression analysis techniques were used to analyze the data obtained. The results of the analysis showed that prospective teachers have a high level of constructivist and a moderate level of traditional learning beliefs while their individual innovativeness state was determined to be in the category of interrogators. Besides, prospective teachers' beliefs in constructivist learning were determined to be a significant predictor of their individual innovativeness state.
