|Title:||Use of Motivational Teaching Techniques and Psychology Student Satisfaction||Contributor(s):||Malouff, John M (author); Hall, Lena (author); Schutte, Nicola (author) ; Rooke, Sally E (author)||Publication Date:||2010||DOI:||10.2304/plat.2010.9.1.39||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7372||Abstract:||This study explored the relationship between the frequency of use of specific motivational teaching techniques and satisfaction of students with their psychology courses. One hundred and thirty-five university students rated the level of use of specific teaching techniques used in psychology courses they had completed and indicated their overall satisfaction with their psychology courses. Higher student ratings of frequency of use of motivational teaching strategies were related to more student satisfaction. The specific motivational teaching techniques that were significantly related to satisfaction spanned nine categories ranging from providing a model of interest in learning to relating course content to student interests. Among the specific motivational teaching techniques significantly related to student satisfaction were expressing interest in facilitating student learning, showing warmth and empathy, giving interesting assignments, praising students for good effort, and providing prompt, constructive feedback. The findings suggest potential value in psychology instructors testing the effects of specific motivational teaching methods.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Psychology Learning & Teaching, 9(1), p. 39-44||Publisher:||Symposium Journals||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1475-7257||Field of Research (FOR):||170199 Psychology not elsewhere classified||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||970117 Expanding Knowledge in Psychology and Cognitive Sciences||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 204
