Last week, my colleague Heather Fedesco and I convened the first meeting of a new, CFT-sponsored journal club on student motivation. We were excited to see the 15 or so faculty members who were there (and to get emails from others who had to miss it but plan to come to future meetings). As we got started, we asked why people had decided to join, and collectively they said something like, “I want to better understand motivation and the role it plays in my students’ efforts and actions. I have some insight, but I’d like language to describe what I think is going on, to help me explain the reasons behind some of the things that I do to try to promote student motivation, and to learn about other practices that might fit my context.”  [More]
