Motivation in the Schools/Dan Pink TED Talk
Ideally, I would have stumbled upon this Doug Johnson blog post about a week hence when we begin to start talking about motivation. You'll probably get a big kick out of the video within, which has the TED Talk by Dan Pink. The point is that there are parallel issues in the schools, at the college level, and in the workforce. There are also some differences (not brought out here) and we might spend some time later on those.
I retired in summer 2010. Before that I was CIO and Associate Dean for eLearning in the College of Business and an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I've done some teaching since I retired.
