In social psychology there are several studies which analyze the importance of human interaction in the process of teaching and learning. This presentation will review some of these findings and their influence on sustain motivation.
2. A Motivated Teacher Can Motivate Students, but What Motivates the Teacher?
Stress is a common experience for teachers struggling to manage learning activities and employ various strategies in their teaching. Teacher motivation is a key factor in functioning despite this stress and fulfilling the role of teacher as facilitator of learning. This presentation will review some findings of a study on teacher motivation, the strategies teachers use to maintain motivation, and how they cope with stressful situations. A short group-workshop will follow, where everybody can participate and share ideas. Then, we could draw together some conclusions.
