Strategies for Motivating Learners

21st century learners, consisting of a mix of Gen X, Millenials, and iGeneration students are demanding a “student centered” approach to learning. In this session, we will discuss the evolving academic strategies and psychology in order to motivate this range of learners. Some of these strategies underpin tactics used in gamification, such as progressive scoring and digital badging, to using apps and social media to engage all learners.
