Inspiring Motivation in eLearning—Self-determination Theory in Practice
Wednesday, July 22, 2015 | 10:00 AM Pacific Time
Free Webinar, eLearning Guild Membership Not Required
This webinar showcases one of the best-rated, most popular sessions, speakers, or topics from DevLearn 2014 Conference & Expo, now available to all through this special online presentation.
eLearning is often viewed as a brain dump of knowledge, with far too little examination of how to motivate learners. Engaging design elements and interactivity can inspire learners to complete modules, but they don’t necessarily inspire learners to keep learning and growing. There is a huge opportunity to incorporate motivational strategies from educational psychology in a practical way in eLearning.
Participants in this session will learn about self-determination theory (SDT), a motivational theory identifying the three basic human needs required for growth and achievement: autonomy, competence, and relatedness. You’ll discuss this theory and explore the proven business benefits of using SDT to motivate learners. You’ll examine practical examples of how to realize this theory through the design of thoughtful web-based training deliverables. You’ll leave this session with a new way of looking at strategies for eLearning that can have long-term positive results for retention, employee development, and employee performance.
