Intrinsic Motivation: How to create a conducive and positive learning environment
For cognitive and metacognitive success in students/ trainees when they learn in class or a workshop, physical, pedagogical and psycho-social factors in the learning environment need to be understood and managed by the educator/ trainer in any of these classroom/ lecture/ training environments. One key challenge is how to intrinsically motivate learners/trainees. This workshop will introduce a few key pedagogical theory and underpinnings that can help educators mitigate this aspect and how to combine the different factors affecting the learning environment to motivate learners.
- Identify different aspects of the learning environment (Physical, Pedagogical and Psychosocial)
- Distinguish and differentiate between the extrinsic and intrinsic factors of motivation
- Identify and list the factors that can affect intrinsic motivation for learning
- Analyse and construct strategies to deal with issues of motivation in the classroom
- Choose and appraise the appropriate strategies for different learning scenarios
