Motivation [Certificate], with Dr. Raymond Uy
What you'll learn
- Motivation and Factors that Affect Work and Study
How would you like to understand how motivation works for you, your friends, students, family members, teammates, co-workers, etc.? And how would you like to identify what might be holding you or others back, and how to reframe the situation to get to the next level?
Before we can become motivated, or motivate others, we need to understand how to think about motivation. This course will provide a basic overview of several motivational psychology theories. The course provides various lenses through which we can look at and understand what can motivate us and what can hold us back.
Included in the overview are drive theory, conditioning theory, self-efficacy, self-determination theory, attribution theory of motivation, and flow theory. A particular emphasis is placed on expectancy-value theory, because of the wide scope of concepts that can help us identify what facilitates or inhibits our motivation.
Also included are practice scenarios, a case study, and a graphic organizer mindmap. At the conclusion of the course, you will receive a Udemy Certificate on “Motivation: Influences that Affect Work and Study.” You will also receive a special offer for four months of online individual motivation coachings, exclusive to Udemy certificate holders for this course.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who is looking to develop a basic understanding of motivation, by learning about various psychological frameworks, to help themselves, friends, students, family members, teammates, or co-workers.
