Remote Access Laboratories (RAL) have potential as a vehicle to influence pre-service teachers' self-efficacy to teach STEM subjects. This research is investigating ways in which engagement with RAL influences pre-service teachers' self-efficacy. Bandura's self-efficacy theory is the conceptual framework in this research. Mixed methods approach will be used. Surveys will trace changes in their self-efficacy to investigate in what ways engagement with RAL influences their self-efficacy. Interviews will be used to investigate why their self-efficacy changed. The outcome of this research is to find out ways to impact on pre-service teachers' self-efficacy to teach STEM.
