Abstract
This article presents the synthesis on how genuine involvement in Continuous Professional Development (CPD) can be predicted. This synthesis derives from the findings of a phenomenological study involving in depth interviews toward 12 English teachers in Indonesia. Teachers are very often justifying their professional development by submitting in documents clarifying their professional development participation. However, the study found that the frequency of professional development participation is not the best way to see their genuine involvement. The study suggests that teachers' professional enthusiasm, i.e., professional motivation, perceived impact of CPD and sustainability effort, can be considerably important component to predict their genuine involvement. Research implications regarding the evaluation on teachers' professional development are also highlighted.
