Each colleague is unique: what motivates who?

Linked to the self-determination theory and intrinsic motivation, you need to first understand their specific motivations and needs. The idea of "what's in it for me?".

Each colleague has unique motivations and professional goals, and it is critical to understand how media literacy might help them achieve them. Some may be motivated to improve student engagement and competences, whereas others may be interested in expanding their own professional development. Or you just need to learn how to implement media literacy because of the curriculum.
