Abstract

This study was to examine the influence of teaching experience on knowledge, motivation and implementation STEM Teaching and Learning (T&L). A quantitative method with survey design was employed. The sample consisted of 129 respondents selected using proportional stratification sampling approach. Data was collected using Ujian Pencapaian Pengetahuan (UPP), Soal Selidik Aspek Motivasi (SSAM) and Soal Selidik Aspek Pelaksanaan (SSAP). ANOVA found that there were significant differences in knowledge, motivation and implementation of STEM T&L based on teaching experience. Novice teachers were found to surpass the veteran teachers in the knowledge and motivation aspects. However, veteran teachers implementing STEM T&L more frequently than novice teachers. The study concluded that teaching experience was found to influence the teachers’ knowledge, motivation and STEM T&L implementation. The research has brought meaningful implications for teachers, school administrator and policy makers.
