MCCL Summit "Intrinsic Motivation" March 29, 2017
The Maine Cohort for Customized Learning is partnering with Thomas College's Center for Innovation in Education to provide four one-day summits in the 2016-2017 school year. Our summit format provides participants an opportunity to share and collaborate in an effort to problem solve and create new methods and action steps that help address our largest implementation challenges.
There is much research on how to create the conditions for learners to be intrinsically motivated to learn. In this summit we will consider a variety of theories on motivation and identify what practices and structures support our ability to apply this research.
This session will engage teachers, administrators, instructional support staff, and consultants in a conversation about the challenges they face in their attempts to create the conditions that generate intrinsically motivated learners.
School teams and individuals will create action plans for their work back home and meet and discuss with other educators to help problem solve their biggest challenges. Come with a team from your district/school or as an individual and help us problem solve and identify strategies and methods that help support educators as they continue to design the Ideal Learning Experience for each and every one of their learners.
Participants will share learnings, gain insights, network with others, and create action steps that will support efforts to transform their systems.
Daily Schedule: 8:30 - 3:00
6.5 Contact hours will be provided.
