2011 Kotesol National Conference

I've officially been accepted as a presenter at the Kotesol National Conference in Daejeon on May 14.  I'll be talking about, "Motivation: Effective Reward Systems."

It's not an academic presentation, but a teacher training one, which is where you come in.  I'm looking for some qualitative kind of input from you about what you do in your classes to motivate your students.  What rewards do you use?  Grades, candy, other things?  How do you administer it?  Do you punish negative behavior or just reward positive?  Does it actually work?  What have you done that hasn't worked.  I'm looking most specifically for your experience in Korea, with both kids and uni students/adults.

Please, please, please respond either to my email: or leave a comment. 

Thanks in advance for your help my readers.  And be sure to check out my presentation!  I look forward to meeting you.

Hi, I often read and enjoy your blog. I am 50 and was especially interested in the "Age" question. I am "in between" semesters looking for a Uni job here in Korea and found a fair job at Woosong University in Daejon. I hope to teach at a better University in the furture. Congrads on your presentation. I am sure you will do well. Have a great day! Jim Quinn
