What about motivation? It is both INTRINSIC and EXTRINSIC and We need to encourage BOTH.
Intrinsic motivation includes… • What students believe about themselves • What the family/culture values • How students perceive the institution
Extrinsic motivation involves… • The rewards provided by instructors or peers (which may not be the same) • The punishments provided by instructors or peers (which may not be the same) • The student’s culture
Meanings U.S. & Europe = Good for you! Australia = You’re a jerk.
Meanings U.S. & Europe = It’s OK, it’s good Turkey = I’m gay.
Let’s start by…. Not de-motivating our students.
Sources of Demotivation Institutional • policies • procedures • processes.
Sources of Demotivation Individual • Making Judgmental comments • Showing disrespect to students • Creating anxiety • Using sarcasm
Establishing Inclusion • Assume a non-blameful attitude. • Promote interaction and collaboration among students. • Learn students’ names. • Encourage cultural observations.
Developing Attitude • Show students what they already know and what they have learned. • Clearly define goals and expectations. • Use fair and clear assessment criteria. • Accept student culture and values.
Enhancing Meaning • Use relevant examples. • Avoid using jargon. • Give immediate feedback • Ask students what it means to them
Engendering Competence • Use mastery learning. • Encourage student self-assessment. • Provide frequent feedback • Provide meaningful feedback.
At your tables… • Write down one thing you will do differently this fall. • Discuss it with your colleagues.
