A Model of Professional Development: Teachers’ Perceptions of their Professional Development
The purpose of this study was to examine the manner in which teachers, who were engaged in an organisational change, perceived their own professional development process. Furthermore, the study conceptualised the manifestation of these perceptions in the development patterns exhibited among the teachers. The findings identified two dimensions that teachers referred to in their professional development stories: the professional development motivation (intrinsic/extrinsic) and types of aspirations (lateral/vertical). These dimensions together create four patterns of development. This study highlights that teachers’ professional development occurs throughout their career over an extended period of time, and that it requires conditions which correspond to their world views.

A Model of Professional Development: Teachers’ Perceptions of their Professional Development
The purpose of this study was (a) to examine the manner in which teachers who were experiencing the implementation of an organisational reform perceived their own professional development process, and (b) to observe the manifestations of these perceptions in the development patterns exhibited among the teachers. The findings identified two dimensions that characterise teachers’ professional- development perceptions and goals: teachers differ from each other in terms of the source of their motivation for professional development (intrinsic or extrinsic), and in the type of development they aim for (lateral or vertical).
