Very Interesting Interview With Motivation Researcher

| 1 Comment

The Dan Foundation published a very interesting interview with motivation researcher R. Alison Adcock. It’s titled A Study of Motivation.

Here’s an excerpt:


The interview, though relatively short, has quite a few intriguing “tidbits.” I was particularly intrigued by her experiments, apparently successful, in providing feedback on self-motivation strategies to participants. I’ve contacted her asking if she would be open to sharing more details on what she did, and will share what, if anything, I learn.

I’m adding this post to The Best Posts & Articles On “Motivating” Students.

  1. Thanks for the link to a very interesting article. I provide ESL instruction and am amazed how one student may be highly motivated while another is not. I do feel the quality of instruction and materials should be engaging. While I’m sure there are numerous factors that contribute to motivation, I’d be very interested to read further comments regarding motivation and learning.
