О курсе

The Art of Engagement and The Psychology of Motivation is a course that will teach you about human beings and what encourages them to do the things they do. This unique course is inspired not just from text books and science experiments, but from personal, first hand experience. Experience teaching children, managing teams and design applications.
The curriculum is designed to be studied over several weeks, with each video giving you interesting concepts and studies to take away, think about and discuss with the tutor and the other students. You'll be encouraged to bring your personal engagement challenges to this course so we can build an engagement plan together.

If you're an application designer, teacher, manager or parent, the psychology to motivate your people is the same and by the end of this course you'll have built an incredibly simple engagement plan to motivate change in any community. You'll not only finish the course with your engagement plan, but the ability to easily reproduce it any time in the future you need to motivate change in a community.

Программа
Introduction to Motivation and Engagement
Introduction
Why We Shouldn't Motivate With Carrots
It's really important to understand how cognitive dissonance turns what we assume will be good motivational techniques into bad ones. Once we have dispelled this myth we can start to learn about real engagement techniques.
The Science of Motivation
Dopamine: The Natural Reward Chemical
Why do we get motivated to do anything at all? Well it's natures way of keeping us alive. The first step is to understand how our brains work.
Pavlovs Dog and skinners Rats
Human behaviour is no different to animal behaviour. What motivates the dogs and the rats will motivate us. This is the first step to understanding human behaviour.
What Naturally Motivates Us?
Once we understand what people really need, we can see what motivates them.
Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation
What's the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation? and why is it so important to make the distinction?
Section Summary
Status and Other Extrinsic Rewards
Status
Status is low down the hierarchy of needs and an extrinsic motivator but it's cheap to provide so is often used as a motivational technique and although it works better than money, it still has it's problems.
Social Proof
We use up mental energy every time we make a decision. We'll only exert ourselves mentally so many times a day. If we can make decisions by copying others or doing what we did last time. We will.

It's been 5 years since I started working in elearning. I understand the limitations and the possibilities of online teaching. I'm excited for the future and I'm amazed at what we can do right now.

It's been 10 years since I first taught a class. I spent three years teaching english in Seoul. I loved seeing the progress of my students and I loved knowing they were having a good time in my class. I learnt about how to write a solid lesson plan the only way I believe anyone can by seeing the results right there in front of me.

It's been 15 years since I first designed and built a website. I remember learning dreaweaver and flash while I was a student and been hooked on the power it gives us, even then I didn't know how far it would go. I've dedicated my life to building and designing web apps to the highest standard and now I want to pass that on.

It's been 30 years since I started school. and I wasn't that good at school truth be told. I had dyslexia and couldn't keep up, having overcome that and managed to find ways to teach myself the skills I need to get some fantastic jobs I'm confident I can explain things in a way everyone can understand and, knowing how much I struggled to learn, I can be very patient in explaining how things need to be done.

I believe all the skills I have built over the years all add up to making great online course to help you move forward with your goals and I look forward to working with you on them
