Subject: Fw: workshop topic: motivation

 

Hi Rowie,

 

We offer a workshop on Motivation and Goal Setting. I use the Expectancy
Value theory of motivation as the framework. We start off by having students
do a values card sort to determine their most important values and then have
them estimate their motivation score for college. Next, students estimate
their motivation scores for each of their current classes. While most
students give themselves a high score for college, there are usually 1-2
classes that they aren't very motivated about. We discuss ways to increase
that motivation by relating the courses to their values or expectancy for
success. For example, a student who valued friends and fun was encouraged to
form study groups and to create games to review for exams. 

 

You can find value cards online. We made our own and printed them on card
stock. I have a bag with ~30 sets which we bring to presentations. Students
really like manipulating the cards. In a small group, folks can share their
values. In a large group, I have them share in pairs or triads.

Considering how we conceptualize motivation is also important. Concepts and
frameworks include intrinsic/extrinsic, instrumental/integrative, process
models of motivation, post-structural identity and investment models,
fixed/growth mindset, and nudging and choice architecture to name a few.

Good questions that this thread is dealing with.

All the best,

Jeffrey

Rowie,

I would suggest you look into research expressly on the topic of achievement
motivation. Pink gets close to this, but in my view misses the mark on a few
things.

In general, I would say one thing we can help students do is reconcile their
intrinsic and extrinsic motivations, and help them deal with the perfectly
natural fear of failure. 

A recent study at U Michigan found that 80% of students equate their
self-worth with their grades, so we need to account for how grades are
understood as reflecting worth and help students navigate these fraught
situations. By focusing on protecting their sense of self in evaluative,
competitive environments students are responding in predictable ways to
environments they did not create. Telling students, “don’t worry about the
grades, just focus on learning” as many faculty do while conveying a kernel
of an important truth about different types of motivations and their
consequences for learning, is hopelessly naïve and fails to address
students' legitimate concerns about grades and grading. 

Given that so much of our work is framed under the aegis of “success” we as
a field must come to terms with the role grades play in student learning—for
better and worse—if we are to help students navigate the motivational
landscape of school learning.

Dear Rowie et al.,

 

I don’t know if you would find this useful, but an episode in the IU Student
Academic Center’s video series is devoted to the topic of motivation:

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sac.indiana.edu_success-2Dtv_videos_4-2Dmotivation.html&d=DwIFAw&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=yBiE514ByeBuT9iMcmLL81H9l3w_eWJJCNWWYb5qET4&m=1S9sLear1h8gsZ1ifBWyiEsOm3-eRL9f1FIeWZDLNs4&s=xSMqs0hqeAdIl7w3VPgMP4XJ1Sg0LTmS5sEXhbF-YT4&e=

 

As with all our videos, we invite you to embed this video in a website, to
excerpt it, to use the transcript to plan lessons or presentations, to argue
over its claims in class discussions, etc.  Each video is also paired with a
few practice exercises and links to associated resources.  

 

In other words, feel free to edit, excerpt, and otherwise reshape this
material with abandon!

 

Anthony

Hi Everyone,

 

I am seeking any resources or strategies to help students on the topic of
motivation. In my years, I felt that this has constantly been a challenge to
address especially in a group setting. Any suggestions or things that people
have done that have seemed to help or impact students on this topic would be
greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!
