Abstract


Abstract: Motivational Factors as Predictors of Teaching Motivation Among Junior High School Teachers in the New Normal. Objectives: The study determined the relationship of three motivational factors (Health and Safety; Readiness and Preparedness in Distance Learning; and Support and Opportunities) to the teaching motivation in the new normal of junior high school teachers. Methods: Regression analysis was used to measure the significant relationships among the three motivational factors and teaching motivation of 204 (34% male and 66% female) respondents who answered the online survey. Findings: The motivational factors such as health and safety (= 0.258; p = 0.003) and readiness and preparedness in distance learning (= 0.217; p = 0.024) revealed that these are significant predictors of teaching motivation. Conclusion: Even though the three motivational factors have a direct positive relationship to teachers’ level of motivation, it was revealed that the health and safety motivational factors result in the highest need of emphasis to level up a teacher’s motivation to continue teaching.

Keywords: Teaching motivation, teachers’ motivational factors, distance learning.
