Loving to Learn: How to Promote Interest and Intrinsic Motivation in the Classroom

Many students who perform well in school still think their coursework is boring or irrelevant, and they avoid challenging learning tasks. The goal of this interactive workshop is to provide evidence-based strategies focused around helping students enjoy learning and motivating students engage in deeper learning strategies in the classroom. We will discuss theories of motivation focused around interest development, intrinsic motivation, and challenge-seeking. We will also discuss classroom practices and intervention techniques that can help promote students’ motivation in positive ways. The goal of the workshop is to provide a toolbox of strategies that can be used to enhance students’ deep learning, interest, and motivation in the classroom.

Days: Monday & Wednesday

Times: 1pm-4pm

Delivery: Virtual

Cost: $250*

Instructors: Xiao-Yin Chen & Emily Rosenzweig, PhD


Creative Curriculum Compacting in the Classroom

This course will provide creative curriculum compacting strategies for teachers to use in the classroom, including the virtual classroom. Curriculum compacting is a means for gifted students to learn a given amount of material in a shorter amount of time so that they may move on to more challenging material or other enrichment activities. Classroom benefits of curriculum compacting include less boredom, greater student autonomy, and learning centered around individual learning styles. With many classes now being offered both online and in-person, opportunities for curriculum compacting should also be available for students both online and in-person. Creative approaches to curriculum compacting including digital multimedia integration will also be explored.

Days: Tuesday & Thursday

Times: 1pm-4pm

Delivery: Virtual

Cost: $250*

Instructor: Christina Yim, PhD student, Art Education

*If registering for two afternoon courses, the second course is discounted to $150, for total registration cost = $400.
