Studies conducted in a Western context have shown that there are multiple factors coming into play to make Teachers Professional Development (TPD) a strategic and powerful tool for improving teacher instructions. However, there have been few studies in Indonesia to also confirm the existing literature. Common influential factors identified by Opfer and Pedder (2011a) that influence TPD are learning activities, teacher characteristics and school conditions.
