Gillard, Sarah; Gillard, Sharlett; Pratt, David
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v8 n1 p1-6 2015
Increasing regulation imposed on education systems at all levels engulfs teaching/learning time and impedes individual pursuits of interest to the learner. However, by restructuring the way educators approach the classroom, students can be provided an opportunity to explore further and become more successful. This success can be derived by removing extrinsic motivation from the equation, leaving the student to rely on intrinsic motivation through autonomy, mastery, and purpose. Described herein is an experimental Master's level Educational Psychology course structured and conducted following these guidelines.
