Identifying and using student learning motivations as a tool for course delivery management
Motivation is seen as a crucial element in the success of any learning activity. This session describes the application of a grounded research method to identify student learning motivations at the very start of a course delivery. The results are presented to students, and are used to give them an understanding of the range of learning motivations in the class, as well as to fine tune course delivery to better address the key learning motivations for that particular class. Results are also used during the final session in the course to help students understand how course delivery was managed to address their learning motivations.
