Find out about the development and structure of a highly successful campus-wide drop-in workshop series: SkillShops. Learn how facilitators use Keller’s ARCS Model of motivation (attention, relevance, confidence and satisfaction) to design workshops that are effective at engaging student learning in a co-curricular environment. The SkillShop structure motivates students to design their own learning that is relevant to them and connects to their coursework, personal and professional growth, and independence as a learner.
