The BOUNCE Project

Bogazici University Customized E-Portfolio (BOUNCE) Project is a research project funded by TÜBİTAK, The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, Career Research Grant Award No. 111K523.

BOUNCE is the software component of the project designed for preservice teachers to be used in their teaching practicum courses. BOUNCE is a web-based system that aims to provide an effective platform both for preservice teachers to upload their course assignments and for course instructors to follow-up their students’ work. More importantly, the system allows instructors structure their students’ teaching experience around the notion of reflection, which is one of the most important skills that preservice teachers ought to develop. Please see the bibliography for the theoretical background and prior findings of the project.
