General Session "The Sounds of Motivation"
Dr. Michael Lanoutte, Southern Technical College
Dr. Lanoutte has been named one of the top ten most influential people in career and technical education.
He holds a Ph.D. and Masters degree in Instructional Design from the University of South Alabama. He also
received a Bachelor's degree in Oceanography from the Florida Institute of Technology. He is also the author
of the book “Ten Traits of Highly Effective Instructors” (ISBN 9781470059477).
The Sounds of Motivation addresses one of the greatest challenges faced by instructors: motivating students.
This session is a culmination of formal and informal best practices for instructors to use to motivate students
as well as themselves and can also be used by education managers to help motivate their instructors. The
goal of the presentation is to give participants practical sets of examples in a variety of delivery methods
which can be used regardless of the educational level and course topic to increase student motivation.
For those who want to continue to learn about "The Sounds of Motivation," Dr. Lanoutte will hold a longer,
more detailed session later in the day. Attendees should be ready to interact and be motivated like you
never have before.
Dr. James Crisp, HVAC Excellence
Upon conclusion of the presentation, Dr. James Crisp will recognize HVACR educational programs that were
granted programmatic accreditation over the last year.
