Motivation is regarded as a key determinant of success. It can guide individuals to work toward goals, promote individuals to initiate activities, take on challenges, and persist in the face of difficulties. However, there are many incidences where learners disengage and lack motivation to pursue their goals. This workshop addresses educational psychology perspectives to investigate learners’ motivation. In order to teach effectively and provide constructive feedback, educators should understand learners’ beliefs and motivation for learning. In this workshop, the presenter will discuss how motivation theories and educational practices complement one another. Implications for instruction will be shared during the workshop.
