Abstract

Teacher beliefs and conceptions about good teaching were explored among Filipino teachers from private schools and universities situated in different provinces throughout the country. Teacher respondents from elementary, high school and college levels (N=272) were asked to respond to an open-ended questionnaire for the study from which qualitative research data were gathered. Qualitative analysis of the data was conducted by identifying dominant emergent thematic categories and related core ideas. The study concludes that Filipino teachers' constructs of the nature of good teaching involve personality-based trait dispositions and teaching competence-based dispositions. These conceptions are also rooted in Filipino cultural ideals and values. © 2008 De La Salle University, Philippines.
