Teaching for Learning or Teaching for Grades?
Some students seem to be overly focused on grades. How can we shift their focus from grades, an extrinsic motivator, to learning, an intrinsic motivator? Do certain kinds of activities and learning environments increase student focus on learning? This session will provide tips for encouraging students’ intrinsic motivation through the co-creation of a learning environment with the class that clearly values learning above all else. Although it’s not reasonable for us to expect students to stop being concerned about their grades altogether, there are strategies we can use to encourage students to care more about their learning.
