Motivation in the Adult Education Classroom


This study circle is designed to provide an opportunity for teachers to review the research found in the recent National Academy of Sciences publication, Improving Adult Literacy Instruction: Options for Practice and Research, and are based on research described in the chapter on motivation, engagement, and persistence. The series of three webinars—Self-Efficacy, Goal Setting and Expectations, and the Learning Environment—will provide participants with an opportunity to review and discuss the latest research and best practices; collaborate and exchange ideas with other participants; try out new ideas and activities in the classroom; and receive guidance and feedback from the facilitator. Outcomes will be practical, proven strategies that can be implemented to enhance program, classroom, and student outcomes.
