Abstract

The purpose of this research was twofold. The first objective was to provide a description of the value orientation of Hong Kong physical education teachers. Secondly, the research would provide an analysis of value orientation from a sample of these teachers. Specifically, this study examined the impact of gender, experience and school level on teachers' value orientations. The revised Value Orientation Inventory (Ennis and Chen, 1993) was used to collect data from 160 physical educators who were teaching either in primary or secondary schools in Hong Kong. Descriptive statistics were computed for each of five value orientations. A one-way analysis of variance tests was used to make comparisons between the scores of gender, experience and school level. The analysis of the data indicated that for male teachers, disciplinary mastery orientation was given a significantly higher priority than their female counterparts. On the other hand, both female teachers and primary school teachers placed considerably more emphasis on social responsibility. Based on teaching experience of the participants, no significant difference was found between the categories.

摘要

本研究旨在探討及分析體育教師之教育價值取向,研究對象為本地一百六十位在職中、小學體育教師。教育價值取向共分五大範疇:包括(一)運動技術主導,(二)學習過程主導,(三)自我確認主導,(四)社會責任主導,及(五)全方位主導。研究結果顯示,本地男體育教師比女教師著重以運動技術為主導;女教師及小學教師則偏向強調以合作性為主的社會責任主導;不同教學年資的教師在五個取向中並沒有顯著差異。
