On Motivation to Apply ODL in Adult Teachers' Education
Karoulis, Athanasis
Informatics in Education, v10 n1 p37-45 2011
This paper investigates the motivation of teachers of primary education to be trained by means of ODL (Open and Distance Learning). The survey took place during a professional training period and aimed to investigate initially the awareness of the teachers as regards the possibility to apply an ODL-model for this training, and secondly their estimations for the success of such an approach. Those questions are however considered through a motivational perspective, as the ARCS model of motivation expresses it. Results showed that a percentage of 20% of the teachers were not aware of the potential of a distance learning in general, while the rest of them appeared to be motivated to participate, yet they showed some hesitation for the outcomes of this "new" educational method.
