Shifting the emphasis of learning towards students becoming more independent and more willing to work harder than their teacher is never going to be easy. But this course will attempt to aid the process by going through the stages needed to be successful. It will be tailored to your requirements on the day and will be hands-on and interactive.
We will explore the very nature of motivation and how to improve it. We will look at why students learn to be dependent and how we can coax them into taking responsibility for their own learning. The outcome of which will see students self-motivated to progress, achieve and excel.
