Leveraging Students’ Motivations in Designing Learning Experiences: Research and Practice

  • Organizer: Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning through Research
  • Venue: 215 Snell Library


Students’ motivations and emotions have been linked to a variety of cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes, including performance, participation, creativity, critical thinking, and self-regulation. In this workshop, explore how our mental models for student classroom motivations shape our understanding of and beliefs about students’ motivational attitudes in our learning environments. Participants in this workshop will come away with an understanding of how to design learning experiences with intrinsic motivation as a developmental end point and how doing so may create both productive dissonances and destructive harmonies in their learning environments. Lunch will be provided.


For Future Faculty Program participants, this session fulfills the “Active Learning” requirement.
