Posted by on in Teaching Strategies

If someone asked me about my most frustrating teaching moments, I would not have to think twice; nothing can be more discouraging than a group of bored students, doing something only because they are told to do it. At the same time, if asked about my worst experience as a student, I get the same image of a boring lecture or activity, with my mind starting to wander elsewhere, thinking of what I will be doing after... In either case, personally, I strongly believe that it is the teacher who can work the magic and make the learning experience more exciting, engaging, and interesting. So, the question is:

Can motivation be embedded into the lesson plan?

Luckily, the answer is YES. Two years ago, while working on my final project for the "Instructional Design" course, I was introduced to Keller's ARCS model, and ever since then, Embedding Motivation into the Lesson Plan has been a magic tool in my teaching toolbox!

The ARCS stands for - Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction.

According to Keller (2000), these four categories represent "sets of conditions that are necessary for a person to be fully motivated."
