Motivating Students: From Apathetic to Inspired

Modern learners have a different mind-set about education, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want to learn. They just go about it differently. Join us to learn what teaching strategies and tools resonate with today’s students.

In a perfect world, all of your students would take your classes because they wanted to, not because they had to. They would arrive early with readings done and assignments completed. They would contribute to discussions and pose compelling questions. They would be completely present; never dozing off, peeking at text messages, or surfing the web during class.

But in the real world, there are students who don’t seem to make much of an effort to prepare, participate, or even show up. Their apathy is palpable, and it shows in their work and in your evaluations.

Take the mystery out of student motivation

Educational psychologists have identified reliable and replicable ways to overcome student apathy and disinterest, and you can learn all about them in Motivating Students: From Apathetic to Inspired. This one-hour video program explains how even small changes to your course design and instructional methodology can better engage students and foster accountability. You will explore evidence-based strategies to help you create a learning environment that increases student motivation, interest, and success.

Any instructor can learn how to elicit better student behavior. You just need the right information and the right tools. Get both in Motivating Students: From Apathetic to Inspired.

Led by Christy Price, EdD, a professor of psychology at Dalton State College, this seminar explains the practical steps you can take to:

  • Increase student participation
  • Apply educational psychology discoveries to your own teaching methods
  • Assess whether current course designs and assessments align with research findings
  • Improve student preparedness
  • Incorporate new instructional tools and methods that better motivate Millennial learners
  • Boost student attendance

While nothing guarantees that you’ll never face another blank stare from a student in the second row, you can minimize student apathy by making some high-impact changes to your teaching style and tools.

The recording of this seminar is now available on CD. You also will receive the complete transcript and all supplemental materials.
