Motivation in the learning environment: Zip line or Iron Maiden?
This presentation explores beliefs students may have about their ability to learn that may have profound implications for them in the classroom. While we understand our pedagogy and how to teach, we may see different student motivational patterns that play out in classrooms that may inhibit academic success. This forum introduces a motivational theory called mindset, and highlights the contrasting paths affecting motivation to learn in the classroom. This session ends with suggested strategies for instructors to incorporate in their classrooms to encourage greater student participation and willingness to take risks.
