EDUC 4013 - Motivation and Learning♦


(5 cr.)
Motivation is an important precursor to learning; yet, what motivates people of different ages and different backgrounds to participate and persist in learning opportunities varies widely. In this course, education professionals explore foundational theories of motivation and how these impact learning. They investigate applications of theories of motivation to understand what occurs in different learning environments. They also explore how to use these theories to help those who work in educational environments make effective decisions about their practice.
