Cultivating motivation is crucial to a language learner's success - and therefore crucial for the language teacher and researcher to understand. This fully revised .

Teaching and Researching Motivation is a substantially revised second edition of the . Please use the PDF version of this article for citations.
The exceptionally high stress level. The increasing restrictions of teaching autonomy by externally imposed curricula, tests, methods and other directives. The fragile self-efficacy of practitioners, most of whom are undertrained in areas concerning group leadership and classroom management.
The difficulty of maintaining an intellectual challenge in the face of repetitive content and routinized classroom practices. An inadequate career structure to generate effective motivational contingent paths.
The economic conditions that are usually worse than those of other service professions with comparable qualifications p. This loss of motivation can manifest itself in many ways, such as depersonalizing the relationships with students and coworkers or becoming cynical about the job. Additionally, burned out teachers suffer from emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and dissatisfaction with their own personal accomplishments Suslu, The first, by Martha Pennington was an attempt to accurately describe teacher satisfaction and the working conditions of ESL teachers, primarily in US and British contexts.
Pennington , p. An orderly and smoothly functioning environment. Textbooks, teaching equipment and other teaching resources which are plentiful, in good condition and up-to-date.
Reasonable work responsibilities in terms or workload and nature of teaching assignment. Moral and work support from administrators. It should be noted that none of these recommendations addressed issues with interpersonal relations between teachers and students or between teachers and their coworkers, as it was reported that the intrinsic nature of teaching was what provided the most job satisfaction.
Rather than solely relying on questionnaires, Doyle and Kim used a combination of surveys, written comments and semi-structured interviews. Again, as with Pennington and others, Doyle and Kim found out that the factors that curbed teacher satisfaction primarily related to extrinsic aspects of the work.
The third study that most directly correlates to this dissertation is that of Amel Shoaib, who addresses the topic of EFL teacher motivation in Saudi Arabia through semi-structured interviews with thirty female Saudi EFL teachers.
Within these three levels, Shoaib , p. Again, the most noticeable characteristic of her recommendations was the fact that, aside from the first recommendation to teachers to self-regulate or self-motivate, none of her advice dealt with intrinsic aspects of teaching.
Rather, all suggestions of the advice related to extrinsic factors in teaching, again suggesting what other researchers have found, that teachers, language and others, find their motivation in the classroom when dealing with students and their subject material. It has been established that teacher motivation and student motivation exist in a mutually beneficial relationship, where healthy interactions are to the benefit of everyone involved, both for the teachers to derive enjoyment from their work and students to succeed in their studies.

However, as the field of L2 motivation research continues to evolve to consider more micro-contextual aspects of language learning, we should begin to see more work in this area. His research interests include on the role of motivation in L2 learning and teaching, the motivation of EFL teachers to acculturate to their host communities, bilingual education, and storytelling in the language classroom.

Nevertheless, on a practical level, it is, perhaps, questionable whether the majority of L2 teachers would be willing or able to invest sufficient time in creating and maintaining ideal L2 selves for individual learners, as well as devising individualised study plans. Section Two then moves on to discuss the notion of learner demotivation.
The authors provide a thorough analysis of the range of factors that may have a negative effect on L2 motivation. This is followed in Chapter Seven by an analysis of teacher motivation.
The suggestion is made that teachers are naturally intrinsically motivated; however, they often become demotivated because of various reasons presented by the authors. The most absorbing feature of Chapter Seven is the potential effect that teacher motivation can have on the motivational disposition of learners, and the supposed link that exists between teacher beliefs and student behaviour. In Section Three, Researching Motivation, the authors include two chapters. Chapter Eight is short and outlines some of the main issues a researcher needs to take into consideration before beginning to research motivation.
Topics discussed here include describing the differences between quantitative and qualitative research, as well as the merits of undertaking cross-sectional or longitudinal research. There is also a helpful discussion on the strengths and weaknesses of mixed methods research. In Chapter Nine, the authors present some of the main research methods used to analyse L2 motivation. This involves describing the various types of quantitative methods used in the past, as well as the qualitative methods now available for researchers.
A particularly helpful addition to the book is a collection of short summaries of previous studies, which illustrate many of the statistical methods presented in the chapter. The authors end the section with some reflection on how a complex dynamic systems approach may be used in researching motivation. Unfortunately, the reader is left rather disappointed by the lack of any real decisiveness from the authors regarding how best to go about undertaking a research project using a dynamic systems approach.
In Section Four, Resources and Further Information, prospective researchers of L2 motivation are presented with useful links to relevant literature both inside and outside the field of L2 studies, as well as additional resources relevant to the study of L2 motivation. A particularly useful contribution is the collection of questionnaires used by various researchers throughout the years. This is a thought-provoking book that will stimulate further research on L2 motivation.
Major highlights of the new edition include the heightened emphasis on the importance of qualitative studies in motivation research, an up-to-date analysis of the concept of the L2 Self System, and a lasting reminder as to how complex dynamic systems theory is heavily influencing research in the field. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending the new edition, and fully agree that the book should be considered essential reading for researchers in the field of motivation research.
