Reflection week 1

27 Sep

22th September 2011 is a first meeting in Motivation and Management of Students for Learning Effective Learning Course.

In our class, we started the discussion about motivation. The question for discussion is the characteristics of the teacher do you like and dislike. When we have some list of those characteristics we have to choose what is the characteristics that can be including in extrinsic and also what are the characteristics in intrinsic motivation. Bu Lidya guides our discussion class about extrinsic and intrinsic motivation by those questions. Extrinsic motivation refers to motivation that comes from factors outside an individual. And intrinsic motivation refers to motivation that comes from factors an individual as opposed to the extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation is driven by an interest or enjoyment in the task itself and exists within the individual rather than relying on any external pressure.

The question that makes me reflect again is about why do you want to be a teacher. Actually I don’t know exactly the answer of that question because my motivation is extrinsic motivation, i have many factors that motivated me want to be a teacher, because of my teachers, parents, and also my friends. “Want to be a teacher” came to my mind when i was in 12th grade. My teacher always gives me advice about my study to education course. She also gives the information about SSE scholarship to me. I think that teaching not a bad profession at all. I’m here (in SSE) because of my parents’ and teachers’ support, I really want to make them proud of me.  They are my motivation. I also want motivate my students too.

Hopefully we can learn more from our reflection and enjoy the class ^^

    Mita, honestly, I just have known that your motivation to be a teacher is coming from extrinsic motivation. I think it is no problem to us, where our motivation comes from as long as we can do the best in every challenge. You have made a good decision to be a teacher..

    Hi, Mita..

    Your experience is same with me,,
    factor that made me decide to become a teacher is came from people around me, like parent, teachers and friends. But, during in SSE, I think I find my passion to become a teacher. Now, factor that make me decide to be a teacher is not only about extrinsic motivation, but also from intrinsic. Hopefully, this motivation makes me stronger about what I have decided. Neither are you Mita 🙂

    Nice to share with you…
