The interest mechanism

Interest involves designing experiences that interest students.

This means, for example:

  • tapping into the diverse interests of your students by providing different kinds of learning activities
  • making full use of opportunities for experiential learning because this approach allows students to make their own learning choices and to see the real world in what they learn.

When designing business studies programmes, effective teachers start with the needs and interests of their students. In order to keep interest levels high, they recognise that their students have different talents, needs, and aspirations, and they explore ways to connect with these. A programme developed for a student in one setting may not be appropriate for different student in a different setting.
