The Application of Motivational Design to Bibliographic Instruction.
Curtis, Ruth V.; Carson, C. Herbert
Research Strategies, v9 n3 p130-38 Sum 1991
Motivation theories may be applied in educational contexts to improve student attitudes and learning achievement. Keller's ARCS Model of Motivational Design stresses attention, relevance, satisfaction, and confidence. Attention and relevance make instruction stimulating, whereas satisfaction and confidence create positive expectations. Through improved library instructional methods, instructors can help students become independent information problem solvers. (seven references) (Author/DB)
