Part 1: Our Students' and Our Own Motivational Patterns and Belief Systems
This will be an interactive workshop with lots of examples from the facilitator and the participants related specifically to their own college courses. There will be discussions on various personal belief systems related to motivation and how students' and instructors' beliefs can play out in classes. We will specifically talk about mindsets, goal orientations, self-efficacy, expectancy, and value. We will define these terms, give examples, and discuss how they relate to different motivational patterns. Then we will brainstorm ways in which instructors can encourage students to develop positive, productive motivation within the participants’ courses.
