    Thank you for your post Sevda. I really like what you said here: “Motivation and social support are successful tools for creating better environments”. Yes! That is so true and I think we know that something is not working (I can tell you many stories about what did not work in my education) but there are also things that do work and those are the things that we need to hone into in order to be successful with the upcoming generations.

    I think you discussed some valid points. Yes, the fields and disciplines are different, surely a discussion-oriented social science class is different with a lecture-oriented statics class. And as you discussed interaction with environment and teacher, and motivating students can still play an important role regardless of context, though its format might be different. I think we can not move from lecture and might be necessary for many subject matters, but what we can do is to think about teacher as facilitator, as a member of learning community, granting that I think we may move forward to reshaping even our lecture-oriented class in a way that students’ learning became its priority.
