The Untranslated Expert Story of Student Motivation

December 3, 2019

This report summarizes the main themes that emerged from 12 one-hour interviews with researchers who have expertise in student motivation (across the disciplines of neurobiology, social psychology, educational psychology, sociology, and economics); three feedback sessions with an additional 10 researchers; and a review of the relevant literature. Together, these themes comprise the ‘untranslated’ story of student motivation—the content that experts want to communicate to members of the public.
