Motivating Students

Course code: CTE088

DescriptionAs instructors, we strive to create learning activities that actively engage students and help strengthen their learning.  However, many of us have been met with a lack of enthusiasm and participation from the students, which can temper our own enthusiasm.  How can we create a positive learning environment that will foster interest and participation from our students? 

In this workshop, we will briefly introduce different forms of motivation.  You will then work in small groups to discuss various elements that affect student motivation.  This will be a highly interactive workshop where you will develop specific strategies to target various element of motivation.
