Abstract

Many teachers of a foreign language (FL) may face struggles particular to their situations working abroad and become demotivated in their careers. Without easy access to support services, they may be susceptible to emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a sense of low personal accomplishment.This paper outlines processes by which teachers can regain and maintain their motivation by practical steps founded on three principles—managing emotions, joining communities, and boosting efficacy. FL teachers can generate agentive thinking and pathway thinking for their own remotivation, promoting proactive step-taking toward preferred futures for their students, colleagues, and themselves.

外国語教師は外国での勤務という特殊事情に起因する様々な状況から物事への意欲の減退や喪失に直面することがある。支援を容易に受けられない環境下では感情の枯渇、社会からの孤立、達成感の低下に陥りやすくなる。本稿では外国語教師が実践できる意欲の回復と維持方法に関して、感情の制御、コミュニティへの参加、自己認識能力の向上という3原則に基づいて段階ごとに説明する。そして、主体的考え方と方向性を見出す考え方を発達させることで、教師が接する学習者、同僚、そして自分自身が望む将来のあり方へ積極的に前進していく方法を提言する。
