Motivational Interviewing in Teaching: Engaging Change

April 5 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Motivational Interviewing is a technique developed in counseling that has emerging evidence as a useful teaching tool, both in the classroom and in office hours and consultations with individual students.

The technique of Motivational Interviewing is particularly effective when someone is exhibiting resistance. It’s a way to facilitate decision-making around change.

In the classroom, for example, this technique can be used to help students change their exam preparation practices without provoking defensiveness.
