Thursday, October 26, 2023

SSC 1075


Ideally, all advisors, faculty, and administrators would be well-versed in motivation theory and research to improve student learning and success. However, because of the numerous theories that have been proposed, reading and understanding motivational research literature can be daunting.

The purpose of this session is to offer a new approach to professional development aimed at simplifying this complexity. Dr. Kenn Barron will introduce a single motivation formula to help you quickly understand the major sources of student motivation and share evidence-based practices that promote each source. Then, we will workshop how the motivation formula and practices can be used when advising to help promote student motivation and success.
