Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning

Do you ever feel a disconnect between how much you and your students care about the material or assignments in a course? To increase students' motivation, it is key to recognize how assignments and activities can relate to real situations that matter to your students. Come learn how theories of motivation can help you design authentic activities that give students the opportunity to become self-motivated learners in your classroom.

 

This is a TA-to-TA workshop, offered by one of CITL's Graduate Affiliates.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
