Teaching Strategies Workshop: Motivating our Students and Ourselves

Teaching Strategies Workshop: Motivating our Students and Ourselves

Tuesday, January 5, 2021
Morning Session: 10 – 10:55 a.m. EST
Afternoon Session: 2 – 2:55 p.m. EST
Register now >>

This program will be presented in two separate sessions. The registration link is valid for both sessions.

Morning Session (10 – 10:55 a.m.): Supporting Student Motivation in a Virtual Environment

Students come into the classroom with varying levels of motivation, and there is no doubt that virtual learning has impacted students’ motivation to learn. In this session, we will discuss anecdotal evidence of the effects of virtual learning on student motivation and how motivation theory can be applied to the classroom to support student learning.

Presented by Kristin Henkaline, Undergraduate Research Support Services Coordinator, The Ohio State University

Afternoon Session (2 – 2:55 p.m.): Motivation and Career Wellbeing

Motivation does not exclusively apply to students; it is also applicable to those of us leading instruction sessions and providing library services. This session will explore career wellbeing with practical strategies for increasing our own engagement for more satisfying and energetic work days.

Presented by Beth Black, Undergraduate Engagement Librarian, The Ohio State University
