Abstract:It is important that in the knowledge society of today one is being prepared for lifelong learning. To accomplish such, education should be differently organized and this has led to various reforms in education. Because of these constant reforms in education, learning by teachers is essential in order to develop themselves professionally. In this study the factors which contribute to the learning of teachers have been researched and also the effect these factors have on the interpretation of an educational reform. The interdependence between teachers and the factor self-efficacy as a monitoring variable have been researched. Regarding the concept of learning a difference is being made in this study between individual and collective learning activities. This study has been held among four ROC van Twente teams of teachers. The results show that collective learning activities are related to the individual and shared interpretation of an educational reform. It also shows that goal interdependence is positively related to collective learning activities. No relation was found either between self-efficacy and learning activities. The conclusion of the study is that task interdependence is an extremely complex concept and that both individual and group factors play a part in experiencing or not experiencing task interdependence. On the other hand goal interdependence seems particularly to be a team characteristic.
