Abstract

This study aims to examine the self-efficacy of instructors who teach Turkish as a foreign language for educational Web 2.0 rapid content development in terms of various variables. The study consists of 155 instructors who teach Turkish in various institutions. This study, which was designed according to the scanning model, is descriptive field research. The scale developed by Birişçi, Kul, Aksu, Akaslan, and Çelik (2018) was used to determine the self-efficacy of the trainers for Web 2.0 rapid content development for educational purposes. Analysis results indicated no significant differences between the variables of gender, technology use in language teaching before COVID-19, the continuation of distance Turkish teaching after COVID-19, and self-efficacy. A significant difference was detected between the education level of the study group, their experience in the field, distance education experience before Covid-19, and their self-efficacy for Web 2.0 rapid content development. The Covid-19 process raised important awareness in terms of teaching Turkish to foreigners remotely. In the information age, it is very important to increase the awareness and experience of teachers who teach Turkish to foreigners remotely about teaching a foreign language with digital tools.

Keywords: Self-efficacy, Teaching Turkish to foreigners, Distance education, Web 2.0 tools
