The relationship between instructors' self-efficacy perceptions and their use of teaching strategies, proficiency level and background characteristics is also investigated based on the three subdimensions of self-efficacy. Mixed method design was employed in the study. In the first phase, a four parts questionnaire was conducted to 374 prep school EFL instructors at 8 different universities in Turkey. In the second phase, interview sessions were held with 25 instructors working at same universities to gain a wide perspective on the points investigated in the questionnaire. Results have revealed that participants' self-efficacy level is quite high especially in classroom management and instructional strategies. Moreover, a significant relationship was found between instructors' self-efficacy perceptions and their language proficiency. Another important finding of the study was that there was a strong correlation between instructors' self-efficacy perceptions and their teaching experience.

Finite-Aperture Microwave Bessel Beams with Vortex Twisting, Fracturing, and Dynamic Phase-Shift Control
Yurchenko, Vladimir; ÇİYDEM, MEHMET; Koç, Seyit Sencer (2022-01-01)
© 2022, Electromagnetics Academy. All rights reserved.—Finite-aperture microwave vortex beams of various structures in the near-, middle-, and far-field propagation zones have been simulated. The decay of external sidelobes leading to the end of non-diffractive propagation within a fraction of the near-field zone is observed. A ring source of the vortex beams with phase-shift and frequency-sweep control of angular modes and polarization patterns through the use of patch antenna arrays of varying polarizatio...
