Micro Teaching (MT) are applications that are carried out with peer and expert supported in order to support the professional development of Pre-service Teachers (PT) and have a unique value in teacher training. These applications offer PT unique experiences as they provide opportunities such as monitoring and evaluating their own performance, learning in collaboration with their peers and receiving continuous and instant feedback from their peers and field experts. The purpose of this research is to examine the professional experiences of PT’ in this process by providing the opportunity to test the contents they designed and implemented in MT courses, in real school environment and on students. MT applications related to the course were carried out in the faculty. The contents prepared in this course were applied to first-year students in a primary school in the faculty region. Student performances during the applications were recorded with a video camera and shared with the PT through a closed group created in a social media application. PT made evaluations about themselves and their peers by watching these performances. The study group of this research, which was carried out in the case study pattern, which is one of the qualitative research techniques, is PT studying at the Faculty of Sports Sciences at MCBU, choosing the MT course (n=16). The data of the research were obtained from the daily notes obtained from the PT and the focus group interviews held at the end of the applications. The data were subjected to content analysis with the support of two experts who were not involved in the research. As a result of the analysis, under the main theme of "teacher qualifications", the experiences of PT were examined in three sub-dimensions: "professional skills", "social skills" and "emotional states". The data obtained indicate that these social media supported and school-based applications have positive results on the professional competencies and social skills of PT. In addition, it is understood from the statements of the PT that the experiences they had within the scope of the research allowed them to get to know their profession and students more realistically.
