Cooperative Learning, Responsibility, Ambiguity, Controversy and Support in Motivating Students
Brecke, Ronald; Jensen, Jacy
InSight: A Collection of Faculty Scholarship, v2 p57-63 2007
This paper argues that student motivation is nurtured more by intrinsic rather than extrinsic rewards. Rather than relying on grades alone to stimulate students, this paper explores how engendering a natural critical learning environment can give students a sense of ownership in their own learning and lead to their commitment to that learning. We examine uses of cooperative learning, shared responsibility, ambiguity, controversy and support in student motivation.
