Towards a didactical framework of co-creation

20 Students need to be motivated to co-create

Both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation should be triggered within students. Intrinsic motivation can be achieved by explaining the value of co-creation to students. They have the opportunity to improve course material for their fellow students and themselves. They also learn the course material by evaluating, correcting and expanding it.

Experience shows that intrinsic motivation does however not suffice. This is not surprising if we know that intrinsic motivation within children becomes weaker by aging. Extrinsic motivators, such as grades, can be used to motivate students.
