Teaching With Impact - Motivation and Mindset

This event is from August 12 - 15, 2019

REGISTRATION CLOSES JUNE 1 (KEEN Partner coupon codes expire May 1)

Motivation and Mindset is a workshop designed to help educators develop an understanding of student motivation in the classroom. Equipped with the theory, frameworks, and tools to describe and explain student motivational responses in your own course activities, you will design an intervention to positively shift students' motivations. After the workshop, you will implement your intervention and measure students' motivational responses. Finally, in consultation with the workshop facilitators and coaches, you will reflect on the student motivational shifts you observed, and revise your intervention for continued improvement.
