This study aimed to determine pre-service physics teachers’ perceptions concerning “Physics lab application.” Realized by employing phenomenology pattern, which is one of the qualitative research methods, this study aimed to reach into the life, thoughts, and perceptions of each individual which they have created through their own experience. Study group consists of 46 pre-service teachers enrolled at the department of physics education at the Faculty of Education of a state university in Ankara during the 2015-2016 academic year; and these pre-service teachers have successfully completed at least two lab classes. Data of the study were gathered via the “Physics Lab Application Metaphors Form,” which is designed by the researchers, and interviews were held with pre-service teachers on the metaphors obtained through this form. Data analysis and evaluation were realized by content analysis. At the end of the study, it was determined that metaphors expressed by pre-service teachers fall mostly under the conceptual category of learning through visual impact. At the same time, these pre-service teachers indicated that they had a good time during lab applications, they learn by doing/experiencing, and that they could concretize abstract concepts with the help of visuals. 

Araştırmada fizik öğretmen adaylarının “Fizik laboratuvar uygulaması” ile ilgili algılarının belirlenmesi amaçlanmıştır. Nitel araştırma yöntemleri içerisinde yer alan olgu bilim deseninden yararlanılarak gerçekleştirilen araştırmada, her bir bireyin kendi deneyimleri ile oluşturduğu yaşam dünyasına, düşüncelerine ve algılarına ulaşılmak istenmiştir. Araştırmanın çalışma grubunu 2015-2016 eğitim ve öğretim yılında Ankara’da bulunan bir devlet üniversitesinin eğitim fakültesinin fizik öğretmenliği bölümünde öğrenim görmekte ve en az iki laboratuvar dersini alarak başarılı bir şekilde tamamlamış olan 46 öğretmen adayı oluşturmaktadır. Araştırmanın verileri araştırmacılar tarafından hazırlanan “Fizik Laboratuvar Uygulaması Metaforlar Formu” aracılığıyla toplanmış ve elde edilen metaforlara yönelik öğretmen adayları ile görüşmeler yapılmıştır. Araştırmada verilerin çözümlenmesi ve yorumlanması içerik analizi ile gerçekleştirilmiştir.Araştırmanın sonucunda öğretmen adayları tarafından ifade edilen metaforların çoğunluğunun görsel etkiyle öğrenme kavramsal kategorisi altında yer aldığı saptanmıştır. Aynı zamanda adayların laboratuvar uygulamalarında eğlendikleri, yaparak yaşayarak öğrendikleri ve soyut kavramları görsellikle somutlaştırabildikleri belirlenmiştir.
