Motivation and Adult Learning Online
Dec 1-17, 2010 | SCoPE Discussion
What motivates adult learners in online learning environments? What are the barriers? How do we measure motivation? Motivation is both complex and multidimensional and there is a lot to explore during this seminar. We will look at the sources of motivation and what we, as educators, can do to support adults in meeting their learning goals.
