According to research, motivation is one of the key factors that influence course completion rates.

ARCS motivational model is a course design and teaching approach that proposes incorporating motivational strategies into learning environments in order to stimulate and sustain students' motivation to learn. The ARCS acronym stands for attention, relevance, confidence, and satisfaction. According to the model, for a student to become and stay motivated, all these four categories have to be addressed in the instruction. In Part 1 of the chat series, the participants will be introduced to the first two components of the model (Attention and Relevance) and their use in the online course design and instruction. Practical examples and ideas will be proposed and discussed in both parts of the series.

Hello Team, 

I reviewed the presentation by Tonka. I am teaching an undergraduate course in Management Info Systems and a graduate course in Data Science and would love to incorporate best practices from online motivational theories in my Fall teaching. I would love to find a mentor who can give me specific ideas as to how I can achieve this in my courses! Thanks!
