There is a lot of research on 'motivation' and most of it is associated with student motivation in education. Further the issue seems to be addressed (especially in ELT) more in terms of extrinsic mode (like provide interesting material, appropriate method or fun activities) than taking into consideration the intrinsic part of it. There is little research (as far as I know) done on the issue of teacher motivation. It has been observed that the main focus of teachers are students and for students it is teachers. In my part of world (Central India) teachers often complain that students are not interested. Students, when asked, replied that teachers are not interested in teaching. So for me, the puzzle is how to motivate teachers for making teaching learning-friendly.
