This course is designed to deepen participants understanding of both student and teacher motivation and the impact of peak performance on the classroom. Participants will extend their knowledge base about peak performance and motivation and its impact on the teaching and learning process. Participants will increase their awareness about various motivational techniques through research, literature, simulations, discussions, applications and reflections. Specific motivational and peak performance strategies will be investigated. Participants will heighten their own perspectives about motivation, and then share this knowledge with both students and colleagues to develop effective peak performance tools for use in both classrooms and personal settings.
