This study focuses on the importance of implementing guidelines to strengthen positive attitudes towards the study among students at Universidad Iberoamericana del Ecuador (UNIB.E). The teaching action-research was used to respond to the situation detected. Twenty-two students were the key informants. The information was also collected through the observation and survey process, which revealed technical difficulties in maintaining interest in the study. In this order of ideas, they are considered necessary the different processes framed in the planning and execution of diverse strategies that project the motivation towards the study. In the development of the different actions applied, it is carried out an evaluation to measure the achievements obtained in order to give greater objectivity and productivity in the fulfillment of the objectives proposed in the present study. Therefore, it is clear that the apathy of students for academic activities is due to the lack of appropriate strategies because these are not meaningful to them. That means, they do not awaken the motivation to generate the necessary interest to develop positive attitudes towards the study.
