Some Factors Affecting the Personal and Professional Growth of Teachers.
Shorey, Leonard L.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the continuing education activities in which teachers engaged and to determine where possible: what factors influenced their participation in courses; the kinds of help teachers received from selected continuing education activities; the kinds of help they received from colleagues; and the changes teachers perceived as needed to facilitate their personal and professional growth. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire sent to all public school teachers employed by the Windsor Board of Education in Ontario. Returns were received to 61.9% of the questionnaires distributed. Five independent variables -- sex, age, academic qualifications, length of teaching experience, and grade level taught -- were selected, and all were found to be significant in influencing participation in the activities investigated.
