Motivational Procedures Workshop: Planning, Conduct, Evaluation and Follow-up.
Mohan, Madan; Hull, Ronald E.
This description of the Motivational Procedures workshop deals with the problem of low motivational levels of students at all grade levels. The objectives of the workshop included creating awareness of the problem, testing motivation principles, determining through feedback the effectiveness of materials, and developing assessment instruments. The workshop activities were divided into two parts--large-group presentations based on specific objectives and small-group or individual activities concerning specific interests and problems. Included in this document are: (a) a description of the instructional materials used; (b) tables constructed from questionnaires describing characteristics of workshop participants and summarizing participants' reactions to the workshop; (c) a list of motivational projects submitted by participants; and (d) a followup study, based on a questionnaire, giving statistics on motivational procedures introduced by workshop participants in their classrooms, motivational materials being used by participants, and the problems encountered by participants in implementing motivational procedures. Outcomes of the workshop were relevant experiences for the participants and opportunities to examine the effectiveness of training modules and other related materials, to field test the model for Inservice Education of Teachers, and to develop a course on motivational procedures. Appendixes include letters, questionnaires, workshop agendas, session descriptions, and participant reactions. (JCW)
