Understanding and Enhancing
presented by Bill Cerbin, Deb Hoskins, and Brian UdermannWhy 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?
