Abstract




When equipped with strong professional learning capacity, teachers are capable of enhancing their efficacy in teaching. However, existing research has seldom revealed how teacher capacity of professional learning influences teacher self-efficacy. This study aims to explore the relationship between teacher capacity of professional learning (TCPL) and teacher self-efficacy (TSE). A convenience sampling methods was used in this study to collect data. Structural equation modelling was employed to analyse and validate the relationship between TCPL and TSE. Results show that teacher professional consciousness positively predicted teacher engagement in experimentation. Teacher professional consciousness positively predicted teacher professional reflection. Teacher engagement in experimentation positively predicted teacher professional reflection. Teacher professional reflection positively influenced TSE. Teacher professional consciousness indirectly predicted TSE through professional reflection. Teacher engagement in experimentation indirectly predicts teacher self-efficacy through professional reflection.


Keywords: Teacher capacity, professional learning, professional consciousness, professional reflection, engagement in experimentation, self-efficacy.
