The ratio between tools being used, support given and trust on and development of existing strengths in students
In the table below 1 is the lowest amount of investments in tools, support or developing students inner motivations and 7 is the highest amount of investments. By combining advices from the litterature for this week, I think one can come up with the following conclusions:
- Tools ought to switch to more interactive face-to-face online tools the longer the course is in progress. This will motivate the students to continue the good work.
- Support ought to be more personal the longer the course is in progress. It also ought to be more forward-looking.Students need personal feedback when their own motivation drops and they also need to focus on the end of the course in order to keep the good work up.
- A students inner motivation develops from enthusiasm and high motivation to bad conscience for not having enough time to keep up the good work.
