This research aimed to compare desirable student teacher characteristics before and after field experience and to propose the guided development of desirable student teacher characteristics. Purposive sampling was used to select a sample group of 177 executives and teachers from 38 educational institutions and 18 student teachers studying in Year 5 Business and Computer Education at Kasetsart University. The research instrument consisted of a note taking form, a questionnaire for participants’ opinions of desirable student teacher characteristics and guided development, and a reflection form. The statistics used were content analysis, mean, standard deviation, and t-test.
The findings revealed that the average post-test scores of desirable student teacher characteristics were significantly higher than the pre-test scores at the .05 level of significance. On the one hand, the executives and teachers surveyed expected student teachers to demonstrate desirable teacher characteristics in four aspects in respect to documents and related research and three further aspects in terms of individual characteristics, learners, and teacher related roles. On the other hand, the student teachers revealed that there were three ways that developed them, namely, authentic experience, advice and support form educational personnel and continuous preparation by their teacher training institution.
Thus, it can be concluded that desirable student teacher characteristics should comprise seven aspects in respect to documents, related research and opinions of executives and teachers at educational institutions. Student teachers demonstrated desirable teacher characteristics better after their field experience. When studying guided development, executives and teachers expected teacher training institutions to equip student teachers with these teacher characteristics before entering field experience, while student teachers indicated that they were developed through authentic experience, advice and support from educational personnel and continuous preparation from their teacher training institution.
