Junior Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices for effective and efficient teaching. There will be great conversations, handouts, and lunch! Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  


Session 3: Critical Factors for Motivating Students to Learn

Have you ever said, “If only my students were more motivated, they would be better students”? Did you then attribute their lack of engagement as being lazy or apathetic? 


Perhaps what is at stake here is not about the quantity of student motivation, but rather the quality. The type of motivation can affect the direction, persistence, and behaviors of our students. Join this session to learn what aspects of the class and your teaching, in addition to helpful strategies, influence the resultant type of student motivational goals and expectations.


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