Firstly, in this paper the historical analysis of volition as a specific construct in front of motivation and conation is developed. From the middle of the eighties volition is focused in empirical literature as a central concept in goal-directed learning behaviours, especially when goals are difficult to reach. Secondly, limits of motivation (values, expectations) to explain reaching complex learning goals which imply overcoming internal or external obstacles are heightened and volition (action control strategies and implementation intentions) is proved to basically contribute to initiate goal-directed actions and bring them to a successful conclusion.

Students’ motivation is a major concern of physical education teachers as well as it interest the others educators. Understanding of that complex variable increased during the last two decades. In the physical education domain, many studies were focused on isolated variables related to motivation and on their relationship with pupils’ behaviours. More recently, qualitative researches were conducted to enter in the class specificity and to integrate the complexity and diversity of the variables that influence students’ motivations. Combining questionnaires interviews and observation, some researchers have confirmed that student’s motivation depends on a package of dispositional as well as individual and collective situational factors. They pointed out also the determining role of the teacher in the development of a motivated class climate. This paper will describe a couple of qualitative studies designed to analyse students’ motivation and will underline their contribution in the understanding of the phenomena related to the development of motivation by students. Moreover, as teachers need research directly focused to their concerns, we must now provide them more support helping them to apply research data. The action research design is proposed as an appropriate approach in that way. The description of a pilot action research focused on the improvement of the students’ motivation in a secondary school level girls class will also proposed. The main results should provide the starting point of a reflective process about the strategies that teachers could plan on the gym. As it has been underlined above, the goal of the paper was to share useful information with practitioners and researchers and to encourage them to involve themselves in personal research on students’ motivation.

An increasing number of studies explore the association between financial and non-financial incentives and the retention of health workers in developing countries. This study aims to contribute to empirical evidence on human resource for health motivation factors to assist policy makers in promoting effective and realistic interventions. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in four rural Tanzanian districts to explore staff stability and health workers' motivation. Data were collected using qualitative and quantitative techniques, covering all levels and types of health facilities. Stability of staff was found to be quite high. Public institutions remained very attractive with better job security, salary and retirement benefits. atisfaction over working conditions was very low owing to inadequate working equipment, work overload, lack of services, difficult environment, favouritism and 'empty promotions'. Positive incentives mentioned were support for career development and supportive supervision. Attracting new staff in rural areas appeared to be more difficult than retaining staff in place. The study concluded that strategies to better motivate health personnel should focus on adequate remuneration, positive working and living environment and supportive management. However, by multiplying health facilities, the latest Tanzanian human resource for health plan could jeopardize current positive results. [less ▲]

A model explaining college performance is proposed where motivation, volition, and study strategies are combined as predictors. Mastery-approach goals are positive predictors and avoidance-goals negative predictors of volitional control intentions of effort. These intentions are positive predictors of endorsement of study strategies intentions. The last ones and intentions of voltional control of effort are positive antecedents of corresponding behaviours, which positively predict exam performances [less ▲]

The introduction of rules and procedures to guide front-line operators’ behaviour and to decrease the frequency of errors is a growing safety strategy in complex, risk systems. It is thought to be a useful way of controlling and standardising human practices and of increasing safety and quality. However, merely developing procedures does not ensure that they are followed. In this study, observation was used to collect information on procedural violations in a pharmaceutical company. Interviews were conducted with the operators and the prescriptors to better understand how and why these violations were occurring. Results showed that a small number of procedures were breached by the majority of operators and that the rules which were violated were the ones associated with a perception of minimum risk. Results suggest the rationality of operators is a response to cognitive and social influences which must be taken into account when designing procedures. [less ▲]

D’importants problèmes de santé sont identifiés par les professionnels chez les adolescents. Toutefois, ces problèmes de santé ne sont que peu ou pas soulevés par les adolescents eux-mêmes car ils consultent peu à ce sujet. En particulier, ils évoquent rarement les aspects psychosociaux des problèmes auxquels ils sont confrontés. Ils fonctionnent dans le clivage entre somatique et psychologique bien que ces deux aspects soient indissociables. Les adolescents sont souvent amenés en consultation par d’autres, dont les parents. Un travail d’identification de la demande réelle de l’adolescent est donc nécessaire pour que celui-ci puisse se mobiliser vers une prise en charge. La confidentialité est cruciale de même que le respect de l’adolescent, ainsi que la reconnaissance de ses craintes et des limites qu’il met à l’accès aux informations par l’anamnèse et l’examen clinique. Il appartient au médecin de lire la demande de l’adolescent dans un double registre, à la fois somatique et psychique et de resituer cette demande dans le contexte de vie particulier à l’adolescent. Aussi, la lecture de la demande intégrera non seulement les problèmes invoqués par l’adolescent mais aussi ceux relevés par l’anamnèse et l’examen clinique. Une telle lecture peut prendre du temps pour les intervenants de santé mais aussi pour l’adolescent, avant qu’il n’aboutisse à l’émergence de sa demande et, dès lors, à une demande de prise en charge. Celle-ci devra parfois faire appel à une équipe spécifique et pluridisciplinaire telle que celle où collaborent les auteurs du présent article, au Centre de Santé de l’Adolescent à Liège. [less ▲]

Within the EURECA project (Towards self-sustainable EUropean REgional CAttle breeds), we interviewed a total of 371 farmers of 15 local cattle breeds in eight European countries. Besides collecting data on farmers, land use, herd composition and economic role of cattle, we aimed at understanding farmers’ motives and values in keeping local cattle. The most frequent first reason to keep the local breed was productivity, followed by tradition. When comparing the local breed with a mainstream breed, only in four breeds was productivity considered the same, while in three breeds more than 50 percent of farmers valued the local breed as more profitable. The local breed was valued as always superior or the same on functional traits. Farmers were asked which type of appreciation they thought representatives of various stakeholders had on their local breed: a positive appreciation was observed in 33 percent of farmers. On average across breeds, 39 percent of farmers expect to increase the size of their herd in the next few years and 5 percent plan to give up farming. The degree of dependence of farmers on economic incentives was estimated by asking farmers their expected behaviour under three scenarios of change of subsidies. Most farmers demanded activities for promoting local breed farming. The results are discussed in terms of breed sustainability and conservation. [less ▲]
