Educational Podcasts

Weekly shows will run for 30 minutes and will explain conceptual ideas, supported with psychological knowledge, Study Coach podcasts makes use of lyrics, examples, stories to convey understanding and aid learning. Education is a serious business but it should also be fun, Study Coach Podcast aims to educate lifelong learners/students to understand human behaviour and to facilitate critical thinking skills and at the same time to entertain listeners. Topics such as how to research; communicate effectively; how to motivate self and other related topics will be discussed in the months ahead.  For example interviewing, motivation: 


Interviewers might want to hear how you would deal with conflict. The aim is to show that you can de-escalate a situation and not make the situation worse. Study Coach would suggest that you could say that taking people away from the area of conflict and sitting them down elsewhere, to allow them to explain what led to the problem would be your chosen strategy. Furthermore, you could give your interviewer confidence and let them know that you are aware of when it is best to escalate the matter to a senior member of staff. 


Motivation is key to achieving success for studies and work. The philosopher Hobbes maintains that all behaviour is determined by the seeking of pleasure and the avoidance of pain, we are motivated because we seek pleasure and want to avoid pain. The thought of hard work might be perceived as painful, therefore creating a lack of motivation. 

Another way to explain Motivation is that it is connected to:

  • pushes and
  • prods     

These pushes and prods can be biological, or social (and psychological) and they help us to defeat our laziness and move us (in other words pushes and prods energise us) to either act eagerly or reluctantly, to take action)

Biological – refers to the process being innate – INTRINSIC MOTIVATION

Social – refers to the process being external – EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION

  • Psychologists tell us that the most powerful motivators are internal (biological motivation/Intrinsic Motivation)
