Course Overview

Teachers often have difficulty recognizing students that lack motivation, but they exist in every classroom!

Research predicts up to 1 million additional high school dropouts due to the pandemic. Dropouts are directly linked with student motivation, which is intrinsically tied to teacher motivation. How do we help our students, and ourselves, stay motivated and stay in school? Don’t miss out on this course to find out novel answers that you can apply tomorrow to this important question.

Getting your students to learn effectively is largely a factor of motivation, but knowing what tools and techniques are actually going to work to inspire your students to learn is much more challenging. Each of your students is unique, so there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. By understanding the brain-based psychology behind student motivation and the different types of motivation, you can start to bring balance into your classroom, whether you’re teaching virtually or in-person.
