Theall, Michael; Franklin, Jennifer
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n78 p99-109 Sum 1999
Reviews and synthesizes a number of motivational models, issues, and strategies, showing their interrelationship, relevance to higher education, and strongly similar conceptual themes and terminology. The models' consistency suggests that inclusion in a coherent community raises awareness and enhances positive attitudes; what emerges is a consistent pattern of emphasis on six factors: inclusion, attitude, meaning, competence, leadership, and satisfaction.
