Podcast #7 – Motivating Students

May 10th, 2007 by Dave · No Comments


I talk about some of the problems I’m having motivating my students and some of my ideas for improving this next semester. I also discuss my students’ final projects and plagiarism.

Miniature Earth is the short video I mention about world wealth and population. I’m planning to use it in conjunction with this activity on the same topic. I also reference the earlier podcast I did about designing a project-based course. OpenOffice is the free office suite I use to do word processing, presentations and so on. A list of many pieces of useful free software is also available.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen Babelfish (the automatic translation tool), check it out.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or want to share some ideas of your own.
