Abstract (Summary)
by Ching-Yi Tseng, Ph.D. Washington State University December 2006 Chair: Joy L. Egbert The transfer of professional development experiences is a primary concern for teachers. The purpose of this study is to explore the process of teachers’ transfer of learning. This study illustrates the factors that influence teachers’ transferring during professional development experiences. I also describe the qualitative research methods that I used during this study. In this study, three descriptions of teachers are given to illuminate how each person’s attitudes and perceptions developed in this professional development experience. The findings indicate how these three teachers’ attitudes and perceptions of professional development experiences and commitment to the material influence the transfer of knowledge from the course into the reality of the classrooms. iv
