Students who are motivated learn more learn better than those whose interests, attention, and self-esteem lag during the semester. Participants in this advanced-level workshop will examine the various factors which in recent research on social belonging and affect have been found to shape student motivation in the classroom. They will consider potential strategies for motivating students to stay engaged throughout the term and to persist throughout difficulties encountered in a course.
This workshop will take place via Zoom. A link to the Zoom session will be sent out with the reminder email the day before the workshop. Attendees must plan to participate in the entire workshop in order to get credit for attendance towards the Professional Development in Teaching Program.
Note that this workshop is geared towards those in the humanities, arts, and social sciences disciplines. Should you have questions, please contact Dr. Meg Gregory, Senior Assistant Director, The Center for Teaching and Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
