Abstract

This study was aimed at describing Indonesian teacher interpersonal behavior profiles based on student perceptions and teacher self-perceptions and examining associations between students’ perceptions of teacher interpersonal behavior and their motivation toward Mathematics and English learning. The data were collected using the Indonesian version of Questionnaire on Teacher Interaction (QTI) and Relative Autonomy Scales. The QTI was based on the Model for Interpersonal Behaviour (MITB) that maps teacher conducts in terms of two dimensions: Influence (Dominance- Submission) and Proximity (Cooperation-Opposition). Participants were 1012 students (grade 7 to 9), 32 classes (Mathematics and English) from 5 public schools in two provinces in Indonesia. The results of this study showed that a variety of interpersonal profile could be distinguished. In addition, associations between students’ perceptions of their teacher interpersonal behaviour were found. Implications for professional development and research are discussed. Professional development of higher education teachers in the context of educational change: teacher learning in communities of practice.
