Abstract [sv]

Syftet med fokusgruppstudien var att undersöka gymnasielärares upplevelser av den egna motivation samt att ta reda på vilka faktorer de anser påverkar elevernas motivation i undervisning och lärande. Resultaten visade, i enlighet med tidigare forskning, att de främsta motivationsskapande faktorerna för eleverna är en god relation mellan lärare och elev, att eleverna får möjlighet att vara delaktiga i undervisningen samt möjlighet till olika val i undervisningen. Lärarnas egen motivation visades öka av att undervisa och av möten med eleverna. Motivationen minskade dock av otrygg arbetsmiljö, otrygga arbetsförhållanden och arbetsuppgifter som inte har med undervisning att göra. Lärarna upplevde att deras egen motivation och engagemang i arbetet påverkade elevernas motivation och engagemang.
