Students who actively prepare outside of the classroom before coming to class are generally more motivated, better informed, and more confident with respect of engaging in productive discussion. Nevertheless, many students arrive in class under-prepared.
This workshop will consider definitions of motivation and persistence in learning. It will provide an opportunity to consider and evaluate strategies and approaches which seek to stimulate students beyond the classroom including ways in which technology can be used effectively to ensure that persistence in learning remains high.
