EDUC 8403 - Motivation, Engagement, and Learning


(4 cr.) Learning takes place when people are motivated and engaged in the process. The role of teacher or instructor is as an educational guide, helping ignite the intellectual curiosity necessary for the learner to reach both personal and curricular goals. This course delves into research, theory, and strategies that facilitate both motivation and engagement. The nature of bounded and boundless learning is examined as it relates to motivation, mindset, achievement, and intelligence. Students will apply current research and theory to inform instruction as well as the development and transformation of learning across settings and from the individual, group, and organizational levels.
