Abstract

This study examined the relationship between background characteristics, motivation patterns and program characteristics, and satisfaction from professional development programs (PD) among education personnel. Data were collected using a questionnaire from participants in 38 PD programs having different objectives and designed for different audiences. Differences in satisfaction were found among participants who demonstrated different patterns of motivation and possessed different perceptions of the PD program contribution. Hence, these factors should be addressed to garner support for additional PD training among education personnel.
