Looking first only at the verb "to praise", as far as I know the correct use of this verb is:
- To praise someone for something/for doing something
Now if we look at the form of the noun "ability", followed by the infinitive construction with to such as:
- You have the ability to run faster than me.
What would look like the correct combination of both in a sentence like the following:
a) Students generally praised him for his ability to create playful and motivating lessons.
b) Students generally praised him for his ability for creating playful and motivatin lessons.
