Teacher Motivation and Professional Development: A Guide to Resources

Abstract

Teacher Motivation and Professional Development: A Guide to Resources provides information on teacher motivation for those planning, conducting, and evaluating PD in math and science. Over 250 resources relevant to teacher motivation and PD were identified and categorized. Categories are described with representative citations, commentaries, and examples to facilitate the search for relevant information. General trends in the literature are noted, including the importance of teacher self-efficacy, the need for collaboration, intrinsic rewards, teacher autonomy, administrative support, and education policy. Given limitations in the existing literature, it was concluded that more research is needed to understand how reforms in curriculum and instruction affect teacher motivation for PD. In addition to the document, a searchable database is available at http://mspmap.org
