Abstract

In the ongoing pandemic process, there are many changes, uncertainties and differences at every stage of education, as is the case all over the world. While it is an important situation for teachers and students to move forward by accepting this fact, every person in the world has their own responsibilities regarding the current situation. Education and training processes have a very important place in the current pandemic conditions. It is known that doing things that can be done from home during the pandemic is a good method to save lives.  At this point, it was seen as inevitable that education should continue from home. All positive and negative situations experienced in this process are important on the psychology of teachers and students in education life. By using technology, getting out of the usual situation and giving education as a teacher and trainer from home and getting education as a student are among the most important factors that create stress. It is best to minimize this stress level and to use the most appropriate methods of coping with stress and to turn this situation into a positive one with the cooperation of teachers and students. In the process, the psychological effects of distance education system on teacher and student have shown differences and similarities according to each level. Active participation of students in their lessons, providing a good learning environment and motivating teachers to their students will reduce the level of negative stress in the process in a psychological sense. At this level of stress, personal responsibility is more important in the distance education system. This study examines the teacher and student psychology related to the pandemic process and the scientific literature on coping with stress, and it is considered important in terms of contributing to the field and guiding the researchers who will work in the field.
