Role Models: a Way to Boost Motivation and Autonoumous Learning (PP199), Paper
Successful role models are a key element to motivate others to achieve their goals. This presentation discusses some Omani role model scholars who have been inspirational to many learners to become autonomous learners. The presenter will analyze their adopted pedagogical approaches and seek the possible implications for the ELT context. Giving specific inspirational incidents from their techniques can boost autonomous learning and motivation among students if teachers encourage students to reflect on these role models.
