Although research on self-efficacy has related primarily to general or business settings, its applicability to teacher behaviors may prove important in contemporary times. Perceptions of self-efficacy, or confidence in one's ability to perform at an effective level, have been related to elevated goal-setting as well as enhanced motivation and persistence in achieving goals, two behaviors which would be considered as assets for classroom teachers. This study investigated whether a methods course assignments requiring use of an emerging technology in the form of development of educational podcasts would affect self-efficacy perceptions of preservice teachers with respect to both perceived technology skills and teaching skills in general. Additionally, the study examines whether or not the same experience affects students' overall course satisfaction. Subjects reported significantly elevated levels of course satisfaction as well as more highly developed perceptions of technology skill and general teaching skill levels as a result of participation in the assignment/project.
