The Relationship among Transformational Teaching and Student Motivation and Learning
Noland, Aaron; Richards, Keith
Journal of Effective Teaching, v14 n3 p5-20 2014
Transformational leadership is a well-documented and validated leadership perspective studied in management and organizational contexts that has recently been applied to the instructional context. The current study predicted a positive relationship between teacher transformational leadership and learning, and motivation. A population of 273 college students was surveyed and these hypotheses were supported. Transformational leadership significantly predicted student state motivation, learning indicators and affective learning. The study ends with an analysis of the transformational leadership model in the instructional context, and directions for future research extending the application of the transformational leadership model in the classroom.
