Abstract

This study examined the relationships between teachers’ learning motivation for subject instructions, strategies, and teaching skills. A questionnaire survey was conducted among teachers who had participated in teacher’s license renewal seminar (N=303). A path analysis revealed that teachers’ “intrinsic motivation,” “orientation toward children,” and “skill orientation” were positively associated with teaching skills, and these relations were mediated by a “planning and reflection” strategy. Additionally, an “ask colleagues” strategy mediated the relation between “orientation toward children” and “teaching skills.” These findings demonstrate that other-oriented motivation such as “orientation toward children” is very important for teachers.
