Jackson CTL Lunch and Learn: From Extrinsic to Intrinsic Motivation
Michigan Tech students are busier than ever before, and instructors often feel compelled to grade homework or other items to make sure students do them. But some worry that this kind of extrinsic motivation can promote “routine expertise” and actually reduce self-motivation and interest. In this luncheon workshop we’ll explore ways to carefully use extrinsic motivators to develop “adaptive expertise” and a sense of connection to build students’ intrinsic motivation. Lunch will be available to those who register by Friday, September 14, 2018.
