CATL workshop on student motivation - March 5

In this session, we’ll discuss a few prevailing theories of motivation and consider what they can tell us about what we can do—or avoid doing—to help students focus on learning.

Motivation and Mindsets
Wednesday, March 5, 12:15-1:25 p.m.
Belk Pavilion 201

Our students are often highly motivated, though at times that motivation can seem more focused on “the grade they earn, not what they learn” (Svinicki, 2005). Research suggests that we can affect student motivation in ways that either impede or facilitate learning. In this session, we’ll discuss a few prevailing theories of motivation and consider what they can tell us about what we can do—or avoid doing—to help students focus on learning. Lunch will be provided.
