This session will take a careful look at what is motivation. We will discuss how there are actually two different kinds of motivation: intrinsic and extrinsic, and how they are inversely related; meaning, that if one grows, the other will diminish. We will look at both empirical data and anecdotal evidence that will support the idea that in order to intrinsically motivate students, we must provide them with an extrinsic-free learning environment.
