How do we help students become more energized and engaged as learners?  This active and interactive (and dare I say provocative?) webinar will tackle the problem of student motivation (and the apparent lack of it). You will explore many practical strategies for designing learning experiences to improve students’ intrinsic motivation. This webinar will also look at common school practices (such as traditional grading, incentives, and praise) that often do more harm than good. You will walk away from this webinar with a more complete understanding of how student motivation works and many strategies for making learning more motivational for your students. You will also gain access to a robust set of online resources to support your implementation and ongoing learning.


  • Learn about six key intrinsic motivators and how to weave them into daily teaching and learning
  • Understand some of the downsides to incentive systems—and learn what to use instead
  • Explore several practice strategies for teaching students skills and strategies of self-management and self-motivation


This seminar is designed for K-12 educators of any content area.
