The overriding issue for many Further Education teachers and trainees is learner disengagement, leading to behavioural issues and a lack of motivation in the classroom. Faced with unmotivated learners on a daily basis, teachers can soon begin to lose their own enthusiasm and confidence. Motivating Unwilling Learners in Further Education offers a range of practical strategies for engaging your learners and reigniting the spark of successful classroom teaching.
Susan Wallace draws on her years of teaching and researching in Further Education to provide an up-to-date selection of strategies and scenarios for managing behaviour and motivating unwilling learners, including tips for
supporting students and meeting curriculum requirements. This is a valuable toolkit of ideas and advice for ensuring that everyone you teach, from school leavers to mature students, reaches their full potential.
Susan Wallace is Emeritus Professor of Education at Nottingham Trent University, where she has been responsible for a range of Further Education Teacher Education programmes. She previously worked for many years in Further Education and in a local authority advisory role for post-14 education.
