Student Motivation

presented by Bill Cerbin, Deb Hoskins, and Brian Udermann
Thursday, December 6, 2:30-3:30 p.m., 161 Wing Technology Center

Why do students... persist when faced with difficult tasks, give up, do just enough to get by, work tenaciously, obsess over grades, focus on avoiding failure, take academic risks, avoid academic risks? What accounts for motivation for learning, and what can instructors do to influence student motivation?  This session invites you to examine your assumptions about what motivates student learning, explore key factors that influence motivation, and discuss strategies instructors can use to support students' effort and persistence.
