WEBINAR: Motivating through Exposure to a Desired Future: “Eat Dessert First”
Jul 6 @ 4:00 pm – 4:45 pm
Presenter: Michelle Park, NU Global Faculty

When learners do not feel intrinsic interest or a sense of urgency around a distant goal, they can easily lose motivation.  This webinar will introduce a pedagogical concept of “Pipeline” that motivates students by giving them exposure to a version of their “future selves” that is closer to achieving a goal – allowing learners to envision their future and acknowledge what it will require of them.  This direct exposure to future demands is intended to increase how much students value the work needed to prepare for that future.

The webinar will include the qualitative and quantitative survey data that indicate how students’ experience in the target domain helped learners construct motivation and better perceive future demands.  It will define the pre-matriculation programs available at Northeastern University while also providing information and implications on how faculty, staff, and administration can benefit from the findings to mutually enhance learning and teaching while working with international as well as domestic students.
