The article provides an overview of the framework for the adoption of instructional innovation across teacher's career stages which was formed by Everett Rogers, a scholar. It discusses Rogers' theory of diffusion of innovations in framing the study in adopting model-based instruction (MBI) in which three groups of teachers that are associated in different ways with a physical education teacher education (PETE) program faculty that uses MBI are being studied. Moreover, it asserts that the mixed methods approach that was used on the framework was designed to examine the influence of MBI in daily practice.
