EDUC 7706 - Motivation

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to graduate study in education.
This course examines current theoretical and motivational research findings that stress the role of dispositional values in motivation. Six main theories (expectancy-values, attribution, social cognitive, goal, intrinsic, and achievement) will provide a foundation of specialized knowledge of this topic. Additionally, teacher candidates will apply specific motivational principles and research to educational settings to support all students’ development of a positive disposition for learning. Teacher candidates will also examine how motivation is contextually facilitated or constrained by various classroom characteristics and socio-cultural factors. Finally, teacher candidates will examine school-level factors and external school reform efforts and their potential for influencing teacher and student motivation.
