The aim of this research project is to investigate the effect that teachers’ motivation has on their use of motivational strategies in the classroom. I hope the results of the research will help educational policy makers to become more aware of the factors which affect English language teacher motivation, and the important influence that this motivation may have on the strategies employed by teachers to motivate language learners.
The questionnaire should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. It consists of three sections: the first section relates to the factors that may affect your personal motivation as a teacher in your current job, and the second to the motivational strategies that you use to motivate your students. Both these sections consist of statements that require a response according to a five point scale. The final section requests some brief personal information. There are no wrong or right answers to any of these questions, and your submitted responses will be anonymous, so please be as honest as you can.
