Motivation in the class room is a complex issue that instructors face everyday.We know motivated students are easier to teach,and if interested in learning,do, in fact, learn! Incentives for taking a particular course may be intrinsic,(internal,self -fulfillment, for the love of a subject,etc.) or extrinsic (outside influences,accomplishing a specific outcome or result,,such as promotion,or financial gain etc.).Ideally,a persons inspiration for achieving an academic task involves an amalgamation of both. As a teacher,showing the relevance and appeal of the course,being a role model,and setting realistic performance goals,will all facilitate class continuity.A variety of student active teaching formats, explaining course rational,and designing appropriately challenging assignments are all sound motivational strategies for maintaining students desire to participate in the process of learning.
