Motivation is one of the key words when it comes to education. There are probably not too many people out there that can say that they were able to accomplish something without being motivated. It seems so easy in the beginning, as adult learners we establish a goal, come up with a strategy on how we are going to achieve it, and then assess the outcome once the goal is achieved. Simple??? It certainly looks that way…… But the reality of things is that there are many unforeseen obstacles on the way that it is very easy to lose direction, and some of those obstacles can make us avoid situations, which results in lowered motivation to accomplish the goal. This is why things should not be left to chance; we need to create an environment that will allow students to explore and make mistakes along the way, without being punished. After all, learning on ones mistakes is a great educational strategy, and can be used as an effective educational tool!
