I learned that motivating your students is important to their success in the class.  Teachers should not only serve as a learning resource but they should also serve as a source of support to the students they encounter. 

It is very apparent with most adult learners that situational factors are a huge area that contributes to success and retention.

The goal of any instructor is to motivate the student to stay focused.   All the while, feeling secured that what they are learning is being processed, thereby, increasing their motivation to stay the course, so to speak. 

Manuel,

If I am unsure or an answer to a students question I might say " thank you for participating in the discussion.  That is not something I have a clear answer to.  I would like to take the opportunity to give it more that and get back to you."  Transition to another topic but make sure you circle back either by the end of lecture or day with a response.
