Presenter: Deb Katz
In this webinar, we will discuss the characteristics of highly motivated students and what we can do to motivate our introductory physics students. Students in a lion-taming course are highly motivated to learn due to the course’s immediate relevance. The course is no-longer just a hoop the student must jump through in order to earn a college degree or meet a prerequisite, but a relevant and applicable lesson to ensure success in the student’s future.
Watch Deb Katz, Physics Professor at the United States Naval Academy webinar, to learn how she creates immediate relevance in her course to motivate and engage students to succeed in her course and throughout their education.
