Webinars are increasingly used for professional development due to their flexibility and accessibility. This study examines the impact of the “Siklab ng Psi” seminar, an in-service teacher training webinar, on intrinsic motivation in constructivist physics learning. Findings show that interactive elements, relevant content, and a supportive community significantly enhance educators’ intrinsic motivation, particularly in terms of interest, meaningfulness, and enjoyment. To optimize future training programs, it is recommended to incorporate more practical examples, improve scheduling, and continue fostering interactive learning environments. These insights aim to enhance professional development and improve teaching practices in complex subjects like quantum mechanics.
