Do you think a well-chosen creative task motivates learners? Chances are that you say yes. Most of us seem to think so. But have you asked yourself how and why? Well, I haven’t for a long time; I just accepted what I experienced. In this workshop, I’d like to share with you what I found when I finally asked this question. We will look at different kinds of motivation and see through classroom activities how they may be triggered by a creative task. Along the way we will change the traditional interpretations of some motivation types. We will also see how some of our fundamental methods may actually reduce learner creativity even if we set creative tasks.
