“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe

Why do students study? Why do they come to class? How, when and why do students need to be motivated? The two main types of motivation are intrinsic and extrinsic. Students that are intrinsically motivated find their motivation from within whilst extrinsically motivated students require external stimuli. Dive into the Toolbox to discover ways in which you can motivate your cohort.


Resources from the Toolbox

See below for resources to assist with communication

The L&T Toolbox provides practical examples for how teaching staff can further enhance their courses using evidence based approaches and activities. The items in the Toolbox have been separated into six categories; Explaining, Responding, Motivation, Engaging, Supporting and Communicating. Targeting specific areas, these resources are aimed at reinforcing RMIT’s vision for student centred learning and empower you to deliver on this promise.

Created in collaboration with experienced learning designers, media producers and senior learning and teaching stakeholders, this toolkit offers a tailored and targeted series of resources. Adoption of the tips and techniques suggested in these resources will help increase student satisfaction by engaging the cohort with opportunities to connect with their instructors and content in diverse ways.

Whilst being bite-sized, these activities deliver a large impact on the student experience and move us towards ensuring our students remain actively engaged throughout their learning journey.
