Abstract: Good teaching requires deep understanding of learner motivation. A lesson or technology may align well with one “motivational profile” but lack the variety required to motivate diverse learners. This workshop will present an approach to learning design based on the research of Richard Ryan and Edward Deci. Participants will use our key questions and frameworks to examine their curriculum and technologies through the lens of common motivational profiles. This approach will model five goals of learning design, namely that the learning will be: Active -by engaging students and giving them increasing responsibility Inclusive -by creating welcoming learning environments Constructive -by inviting students to guide the learning Authentic -by making content relevant Collaborative -by leading learners to co-construct new knowledge In this hands-on workshop, we will apply the approaches shared to a re-design of lessons and/or syllabi they have brought with them to the workshop.
