Keeping the torch glowing

What you can do to boost your personal motivation

Ideally, a motivated teacher will spark students' enthusiasm - and vice versa. Unfortunately, reality may paint a different picture: At times, teachers will appear apathetic - as students occasionally do as well. The result can be a vicious cycle of declining educa­tional quality, poor examination results, and disappointing instructor evalua­tions. For this reason, it is essential to ensure that your teaching activities remain personally rewarding. Your renewed sense of enjoy­ment and satis­faction will be certain to bene­fit your students as well. 

Academic instructors have been known to experience their teaching commit­ments as an added burden that siphons off energies from their research; more­over, in the role of edu­cators, they may some­times feel uncom­fortably exposed. To those, how­ever, who succeed in designing their teaching activi­ties in such a way that not only their ongoing research but also their encounters with students give them joy, and who have sustained a personal interest in their field, while resting confi­dent of the effective­ness of their approach, teaching will continue to be a source of inspiration, intellectual dialogue, and ongoing success - for them­selves and their students alike.
