Motivation in Education event

 

This online event took place on February 23 2021 and was attended by over 60 professionals from different parts of the country.

The pandemic has brought many challenges for education settings, and has had a significant effect on the ability of staff and pupils to concentrate and stay motivated. The focus of this event was to help individuals develop a greater awareness of Motivation for themselves and the setting they work in.

Bevis Moynan (Author of Mapping Motivation for Coaching) and Senior Trainer of Motivational Mapping spoke about various scenarios where motivation is a prime factor in achieving successful outcomes, examples of some of these are;

 

  • Improve the dynamic between children/parents and teachers
  • Improve classroom and online motivation and performance
  • Enhance leadership management and coaching skills through knowledge of the differences in what motivates and how you can use that to aid performance, communication and cohesion
  • Ensure your own career decisions are in alignment with what is important to you and how that is likely to change
  • Understand values based career conflict and why both people get stuck in their careers and struggle with people with opposing career values
  • Understand how a knowledge of motivation can massively grow awareness and lead to more informed delivery and unlock challenges with student learning
