The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relation between teacher's learning motivation on subject instruction, their way of learning and their teaching ability. Japanese teachers completed a questionnaire about learning motivation (intrinsic motivation, orientation toward children, skill orientation, orientation to approval and comparison, sense of duty, indifference), way of learning (planning and reviewing, ask for colleagues, use of external resources, use of internet) and perception of their teaching ability. Results showed that (a) intrinsic motivation, orientation toward children and skill orientation related to planning and reviewing, (b) intrinsic motivation and skill orientation related to use of external resources, (c) orientation toward children related to ask for colleagues. In addition, (d) planning and reviewing and ask for colleagues related to perception of their teaching ability. From the above results, intrinsic motivation, orientation toward children and skill orientation was a good motivation for teachers.
