Keywords:physical education (PE) teachers; professional development; psychological adjustment ability (PAA); technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS)
The professional development of physical education (PE) teachers is the core of cultivating professional PE experts with excellent instructiveness and pedagogical quality. The existing studies on the professional development of PE teachers (PETPD) mainly focus on the specific development strategies, and the correlation between professional development and education reform, failing to consider the psychological factors that affect PETPD. Therefore, this paper explores deep into PETPD, and its correlation with psychological adjustment ability (PAA). Specifically, the PETPD model was given, and an evaluation index system (EIS) of PETPD was constructed, in the light of the psychological adaptation of PE teachers. Next, a comprehensive PETPD evaluation model was established based on entropy weight - technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS), and PETPD prediction was detailed based on deep neural network (DNN). Through experiments, the comprehensive evaluation results on PETPD were subjected to multiway analysis of variance (ANOVA), and the influence of different factors on the PAA of primary school PE teachers was discussed under the demand of professional development. The research results prove the important positive effect of professional development and psychological adjustment on the career development of PE teachers.
