Yousef Alhaggass
Abstract—It is widely known that the quality of teachers’ performance is a vital component of any educational system. Therefore, this study aims to address the issue of professional development of physics teachers in Saudi Arabia by reviewing the preferred on the job training activities of their in-service training in terms of meeting their training needs and consequently assisting them to teach physics topics effectively. The research reviews data from a relevant sample (N=62) of physics teachers at secondary and intermediate schools in the city of Onaizah, Saudi Arabia. The results have shown that many participants made clear statements about the limit positive impact on their performance as a result of on-the-job training activities by physics supervisor. Furthermore, in order to increase the effectiveness of professional learning for physics teachers, some suggestions have been given by many participants.
