Increasing Intrinsic Motivation is a mini course focused on increasing self-determination in students at home and at school. We will focus on taking apart Self Determination Theory and Cognitive Evaluation Theory (Deci & Ryan, 1985) to assist in creating environments that facilitate intrinsic motivation in learning and development. Throughout the course, we will discuss the tenets of competence, autonomy, and relatedness, and the facilitation of those basic psychological needs.
