Li Zhang


Ideological and political teacher play a key role in college political education. They have multiple tasks including assisting college students in political learning, teaching political, and conducting political -related research. Self-efficacy affects their educational level and scientific research level, and those working and living in high-stress environments tend towards job burnout. In this paper, the fundamentals of self-efficacy and job burnout are sorted in detail. 242 ideological and political teacher from 15 local colleges and universities in Hubei Province are selected as the survey samples. Through questionnaire survey and interview, we can understand the status of self-efficacy and job burnout of college ideological and political teacher, and obtain the qualitative and quantitative result of the relationship between self-efficacy and job burnout. Finally, based on data analysis, we sum up their relationship, and put forward the corresponding coping strategies. The emphasis of ideological and political teachers’ role in improving political teaching quality drives ideological and political teachers to understand their teaching status and make timely adjustment, which will be conducive to college political teaching quality enhancement.
