Christian Learner: Motivation
Part of gaining knowledge and instruction is preparing the learner for future learning experiences.
Instructors will need to prepare the learners for the complex world in which they will live and work. The instructor should develop interactive, inquiry-based, technology-rich curriculum (Berger 2010.) Berger also states that active learners, rather than passive, learners are better able to understand complex material and can more effectively transfer information.
For the Christian learner, they will need to inquire with the correct motives. James 4:3 (NASB) states“You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.”
When they inquire with the wrong motives, effective learning may not take place.”
