As a novice clinical insructor it is a challenge learning the content of the work and delivering the materials effectively.  But form this lesson I have learnt the factors to keep students motivated and delivering clear and accurate insrtuctions is very important.My action plan is to use more varied activities, not to make students feel insecure .  Now being aware of the inrinsic factors that motivate students I will focus on these things.

Intrinsic motivators are long lasting.  Student has the desire to succeed because of how they feel about their lesson, instructor, content,

Extrinsic factos are temporary- student is motivated and is seeking rewards .


Autonomy allows students to make choices that will assist them to succeed


I learned that security is the student believing in their ability to get work done and autonomy is student performing work by themselves.

With this information I will encourage students and try to boost their selfconfidence.
