The Center for Teaching Excellence invites you to join us for a presentation by Dr. Marilla Svinicki, Professor of Educational Psychology, The University of Texas at Austin. Abstract: Student motivation for learning is sometimes hard to see and often hard to understand.  We will look at the current motivation theories that inform teacher/student interactions to foster greater and more self-regulated motivation for learning.  Participants will not only hear about the theories, but attempt to identify their own practices that encourage students to become more self-regulating and self-motivating. Please RSVP at the more information tab below.
