The relationship between motivation to teach and teaching method of Physical educators

Hossein Alimohammadi, Mehdi Sohrabi, Alireza Saberi


Nowadays, education systems are led by the two-way teacher-student graph. Thanks to students' participation in the act of teaching, a teacher can easily select the appropriate method or methods of teaching in accordance with his/her students' ability, the topic of the lesson, educational goals and contextual conditions. Therefore, all communities need experienced, talented and motivated teachers so that they can educate their youth in a modern education system and prepare them to realize the goals of the society. This research aims at investigating the relationship between motivation to teach and physical educators' training method. To do this, 250educators who taught at senior high school were randomly selected. All educators responded to the teaching method and motivation to teach questionnaires. Alpha Cronbach's coefficient was used to measure the reliability of these tools. Results of the measurements showed that the data collection tools have acceptable validity and reliability. The results of the study indicate that there is a relationship between motivation to teach and educator's training method. They also showed that an educator's intrinsic motivation is positively related to their student-centered method of teaching and his/her extrinsic motivation has a positive relationship with their teacher-centered method of training. Thus, based on the findings of this research, it is suggested that education systems pay more attention to teachers' motivation (particularly their intrinsic motivation) and learner-centered teaching methods as factors that affect students' motivation and educational development.
