Category: Professional Development

Whether we like it or not, we teachers are in the business of motivating our students. In fact, the motivation level of our students is often what most determines their success in and enjoyment of our classes. Fortunately, motivation is a well studied topic across a broad variety of disciplines, including psycholinguistics, educational psychology, organizational psychology, conflict resolution, stress physiology, and marketing. Join us for <i><b>A Multidisciplinary Toolbox for Motivating Diverse Students</i></b> on April 12 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus in CM 214 with facilitator Michael Berman. Registration information is below.

Drawing from current literature across these areas, the presenter discusses five important overlaps of these disciplines and, from this set of core principles,identifies key strategies, both quick and involved, for motivating our students in the community college classroom.


1. Participants will learn five core strategies for motivating students.
2. Participants will learn to apply these strategies to discrete elements of instruction such as exercise development and written feedback on student papers.

1. Log in to your My MC - - and click on "Training & Professional Development".
2. Click "MC Learns" then "Schedule of Classes and Events" and "Pedagogy & Instruction".
3. Find your workshop and click "Enroll" at the top right corner of the page.
4. Walk-ins welcome.
