Application of the Job Wholeheartedness Concept to Enhance Students’ Motivation and Engagement
Enhancing students’ motivation and engagement in learning is critical for their success and happiness. This paper attempts to apply the concept of job wholeheartedness to help students love learning fully and wholeheartedly. Job wholeheartedness is total motivation people have for their jobs. Job wholeheartedness comes from an understanding of the freedom of choice, mindfulness, emotional intelligence, metacognition, and the third perspective that enable people to accept and embrace their jobs entirely. This paper proposes that these can also be the tools and practices that help students love and enjoy their learning.
