TBF037 – Motivations and Engagement

  • SumoMe

Episode 37In this episode we talk about Reiss’s 16 Intrinsic Motivations, and what it is about subtitles that engages us.

Steven Reiss suggests that there are 16 distinctly different intrinsic motivators.  Of those, I think there are 8 that really work for training session.  Scatter as many as you can in there and hopefully participants do a bit more of the heavy lifting for you.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi (trailer seen here) was a great movie that got me thinking of how we can learn form a subtitled documentary to increase learner engagement.  It’s a great movie but the whole thing is in Japanese with english subtitles.  Turns out, this really worked to keep me engaged.

Thank you for taking the time to listen! Seriously!
