50 Ways to Lure Your Learner
Cassidy, Alice
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v2 p2-7 2009
"Hop on the bus, Gus. Make a new plan, Stan." What are some techniques to hook or "lure" learners and to keep them motivated? Knowing the diversity of students, their interests, backgrounds, and preferred learning styles, no single technique will be successful all of the time. This paper describes a large number of ways teachers can engage students with course material and objectives, citing examples from the author, participants in a 2008 Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) conference session, and web resources. After reading this paper and checking out some of the many hotlinks, readers will have "more spice" to add to their teaching repertoire. We all want to help students learn. Let's see if we can add 50 ways to do just that. "The answer is easy if you take it logically."
