Abstract

The study adopted a quantitative case-study approach to examine the views of Visual Arts studentteachers on their challenges to the teaching and learning of practicals in virtual classrooms in Bagabaga
College of Education, Tamale. It was also to find out the student-teachers’ perspectives with regard to
their suggestions in addressing the challenges. Data source was mainly online surveys using google
forms for a sample of 37 student-teachers. The study found that the study of practicals in either
synchronous or asynchronous approach was very poor because student-teachers had insufficient
training as to how to use online learning management systems and resources. However, the decision
to blend virtual classes with face-to-face was welcomed and appraised as it helped student-teachers to
learn most of their practicals during the face-to-face sessions with their tutors.
