  • Educ 712 - Issues in Human Motivation
    Educ 712 is designed to introduce students to theories of human motivation and their applications in educational settings. We explore the primary theories currently in use to describe, explain, and predict education-related motivation. Along the way, we examine the historical context in which the theories evolved, and the key players associated with each theory. We also apply these theories to the issues that practitioners face in their current and anticipated work environments.

The course focuses on understanding change, from individual growth, development, and knowledge change, to how institutional, organizational, and cultural change can be viewed from the lens of learning as a process.
