CAA205 – How to Motivate Students to Increase Performance

Human beings are born with intrinsic motivation. But our natural tendency to seek out challenges and opportunities to learn operates robustly only under certain conditions.

Participants will develop a clear understanding of motivation theory and strategies for fostering intrinsic motivation among students, especially under-resourced students.


  • Improve long-term student achievement
  • Create productive classroom and campus environments
  • Build relationships of mutual respect
  • Students develop goal-directed behavior, self-awareness, and autonomy

You’ll also learn how student background affects motivation, how to use rewards productively, and how to develop individualized motivation plans.
