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.
This self-paced online course examines additional principles and strategies addressed in the National Research Council’s report, Improving Adult Literacy Instruction: Supporting Learning and Motivation. This course supports teachers' understanding of strategies that motivate adult learners to persist including using and inspiring learners’ interests, building learners’ self-efficacy, using incentives and motivation, providing choice and autonomy, and using digital media to promote persistence.
This webinar will provide an overview of a LINCS study circle that focuses on adult learner motivation. Research highlights will be discussed, and participants will have an opportunity to share strategies they use to enhance learners’ motivation.
