Does Making Content Relevant Make a Difference in Learning?
Frymier, Ann Bainbridge; And Others
Instructors search for methods to enhance students' motivation and learning. Immediacy and relevance have been linked to increased motivation in the classroom. A study extended research by A. Frymier and G. Shulman (1995) that found immediacy and relevance to be associated with one another. A 2 (high and low immediacy) by 2 (high and low relevance) experimental design was used to investigate the interaction between immediacy and relevance and their impact on motivation and learning. Results indicated that immediacy had a significant impact on motivation and learning, while relevance did not. Contains 21 references and a table of data. (Author/RS)
