Motivating Powerful Student Learning and Engagement

8th May, 2024 @ 1:00 pm


08/05/2024 - 1:00 pm - 6:30 pm


“Why don’t some students engage with certain topics or feel connected to their peers or the school at large?

 Why don’t students perform well on exams after performing brilliantly on homework and other assignments?”

Cracking the code of student motivation and engagement in learning is an ongoing journey for educators across so many facets of the school experience.

By combining neuroscientific, psychological, and the latest educational research in how we learn, world leading experts, Peps Mccrea and Dr Jared Cooney Horvath come together to provide a masterclass series in understanding the science of motivation, how engagement works and how teachers can address even the most persistent and common learning dilemmas in practical and actionable ways that promote student self-efficacy.

Participants will explore learning in the following areas and will also be provided the opportunity to co design areas of interest:

  • The mechanics behind motivation and the Motivation for Learning Framework
  • Key drivers for motivation
  • The power of effective feedback and metacognition in learning
  • The role of emotions, relationships and belonging in schools
  • Overcoming the digital challenge
  • Explore successful learning processes that work

Please note, to support the live presentations of expert presenters, some session times will be scheduled in the evening. We are excited that Dr Jared Cooney Horvath will be presenting in person at the AISSA at Session 1.
