Seeks to identify issues that impact on the motivation of academic staff in higher education. Argues that the rational-economic model, the social model, the self-actualizing model and the complex models of motivation provide a basis for analysing staff motivation as a central issue in evolving quality cultures. Discusses environmental factors that impact on motivation including: approaches to financial rewards, the culture of teaching and higher education, the diversity of staff experience and roles, personal autonomy, and organizational structure.
