Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify which instructional methods teachers preferred most and which they disliked most. Five hundred and eighty-nine teachers volunteered to participate in this study but 313 completed and returned copies of the questionnaire delivered to them. The results indicated that most teachers preferred demonstration when combined with hands-on activities most while they disliked lecture method most. Only 15% of teachers preferred problem-solving method but when problem-solving method was combined with hands-on activities, almost half of the participants (49.8%) preferred the latter most. The results also indicated that large proportions of teachers chose different methods indicating that teachers would want trainers to use a variety of instructional methods to address different kinds of preferred instructional methods among teachers.
