Motivating Students

Motivating Students: How we connect with and motivate students is closely tied to the effectiveness of our teaching. Perhaps the best resource for research on this topic is How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching (Ambrose et al.) You can borrow a copy of this book from the UNG libraries. In addition, the following resources explore the nature of motivation, what role we play in fostering motivation in our students, and what we can do to help our students identify and exploit their motivators.
