Promoting Self-Determined Education.
Deci, Edvard L.; Ryan, Richard M.
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v38 n1 p3-14 1994
A theory of self-determination is presented in which concepts of intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation are explicated and the innate psychological needs for competence, autonomy, and relatedness are discussed. A review of laboratory and field studies indicates the importance of social contexts that facilitate satisfaction of these basic needs. (SLD)
