Contemporary Motivation Research: From Global to Local Perspectives
Hogrefe & Huber Publishers, 2009 - Health & Fitness - 377 pages
Motivation research has a huge amount to offer in diverse areas of work and life. As with all scientific endeavors, however, it must face the issue of generalizability knowing what works and under what conditions. This book confronts that issue by showcasing both applied "snapshots" and more basic theory-based enquiries that provide a global picture of contemporary motivation research and its applications. A stellar group of international scholars discuss different theoretical perspectives (e.g., achievement goals, self-determination, cognitive load, control value of achievement emotions, interest, self-efficacy) in diverse contexts (e.g., cooperative learning, help-seeking, teacher education, technology facilitation) to highlight the dynamic interplay between more basic research and real-life practice in classrooms and the workplace.
