Abstract:


The aim of this study is to examine the effects of geography teachers' self-efficacy perceptions and attitudes toward teaching on their motivation levels. In this context, 299 geography teachers who were actively working participated in the research. A positive relationship was found between the geography teachers' self-efficacy perceptions, their attitudes towards teaching, and their motivations. According to the results of the study, as the service years of geography teachers increase, their motivation levels decrease. Furthermore, it was observed that female geography teachers' attitudes towards teaching were higher than male geography teachers. Finally, it was seen that geography teachers' self-efficacy perceptions and attitudes toward teaching predicted their motivation positively and significantly. The findings are discussed in light of the literature
