Marisa_C I like this #ELTchat topic - no one to motivate ME!!!! Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:05:32 +0000
buckyacademics So...motivating teachers. Ss motivate Ts of course.  Money also ;) #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:05:38 +0000

DaveDodgson Just back from a aprents' evening - plenty of demotivated teachers there! #ELTchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:06:02 +0000
Marisa_C You are my motivation I think - having a great PLN is good for the soul #Eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:06:14 +0000
theteacherjames So maybe we can begin by discussing what motivates you? #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:06:23 +0000
SueAnnan @DaveDodgson  Why are they demotivated? #ELTchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:06:24 +0000
jankenb2 #eltchat What motivates teachers? I think relevant and dynamic PD. How fired up do you feel when you attend a really great conference? Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:06:57 +0000

DaveDodgson @jankenb2 I feel fired up but I know many who would NEVER go to a conference & see it as a waste of free time #ELTchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:08:07 +0000

DaveDodgson @SueAnnan But this is an issue - some see teaching as just a job & resent any 'extra' work (even if it is part of the job) #ELTchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:08:43 +0000

jankenb2 #eltchat I think money is part of the PD challenge as well. If Ts are paid more, then they will justify attending conf &/or advanced degrees Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:09:36 +0000
MarjorieRosenbe Anyone have a good definition of motivation? Is it different for teachers and students? #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:09:42 +0000
jorgeguillen I think one needs an intrinsic desire to excel at what one does and do something one loves in the first place. #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:09:47 +0000

Marisa_C The problem with motivating Ts is not just abt money #ELTchat it's porr leadership which does not reward for the extra mile we take Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:11:18 +0000
jorgeguillen @Marisa_C I share your view. Knitting there others who worry about education and ELT particularly pushes me a great deal. #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:11:20 +0000

DaveDodgson Many people I have met who work in EFL have 'fallen' into it. Some go on to be great teachers, others see it as a way to pay bills #ELTchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:12:29 +0000
buckyacademics @jorgeguillen Completely agree! Intrinsic motivation is all well and good, but you also need extrinsic motivation (decent salary) #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:13:00 +0000
theteacherjames I think money is  a red herring. Of course we need to be paid fairly, but there are many other factors in motivating people. #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:13:04 +0000
Marisa_C I think lots of Ts are DEmotivated becoz not enough ppl to share with in staffroom - or completely indifferent #ELTchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:13:20 +0000
MarjorieRosenbe @Marisa_C Absolutely. The uni I teach at treats us well and the sts are great. Still motivated and love what I do. #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:13:20 +0000

buckyacademics Sometimes more money can lead to lack of motivation - you get too comfortable #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:16:10 +0000
Wiktor_K @theteacherjames True that. Motivating with money is like relying on sugar rush to keep kids happy...lazy stuff, really. #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:16:34 +0000

MrChrisJWilson Just a thought. The other side of not "just the job" is perpetually working. too many hours. being forced into social events etc #eltchat Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:51:53 +0000
