Teacher training, face-to-face training, online training,resistance factors


Within a course on educational technology, student teachers could choose among different modules, some online and some face-to-face. A survey was then carried out to analyse the reasons for trainees' choices and, particularly, their attitudes towards online training. The study of the factors that had lead most course participants to opt for face-to-face rather than online activities has revealed that resistance towards the online mode is mainly due to cultural and logistic factors. Reasons to choose online, instead, mainly lie in personal interest and motivation. To conclude, some hypotheses are made as for ways through which resistance could be overcome.
