The present study aims to reveal the variety in primary school teacher candidates’ (n=20) benefit conceptions regarding EA, both before and after course including EA, as well as any improvements that occurred. Phenomenography was utilized, while written responses and reports, interviews and observation notes were used as the data. Two types of benefits, fundamental and advance emerge. Fundamental benefits emerged in four categories, namely low benefit, benefit with reasoning, benefit with a future professional plan and benefit with passion. Advance level benefits were captured in three categories, namely promising, moderately promising and highly promising. Overall, the PSTCs’ benefit conceptions improved as a result of the course. 

Bu çalışma ilkokul öğretmen adaylarının (n=20) deney etkinliklerinin faydalarına ilişkin kavramlarının, deneysel etkinlikleri içeren ders öncesi ve sonrası, çeşitliliğini ve uygulanan dersin etkisini ortaya çıkarmayı amaçlamakatadır. Çalışmada araştırma deseni olarak fenomenografi, veri olarak ise yazılı cevaplar, raporlar ve görüşme ve gözlem notları kullanılmıştır. Araştırmada temel ve ileri düzey olmak üzere iki çeşit faydaya ulaşılmıştır. Temel faydalar, düşük, nedene dayalı, geleceğe dönük profesyonel plan içeren, ve tutku içeren olmak üzere dört kategoride toplanmıştır. İleri düzey fayda ise, umut verici, orta düzeyde umut verici ve yüksek düzeyde umut verici olmak üzere üç kategoride toplanmıştır. Öğretmen adaylarının fayda kavramları derse bağlı olarak gelişmiştir.
