On 20th July 2013, staff at the Greenwich Free School hosted a symposium on ‘Motivational Psychology in Educational Settings’, which put psychologists, anthropologists and educational practitioners into dialogue to evaluate current thinking in the field of motivational psychology, and to explore possible agendas for future research in this field.
The event was a great success, and we would like to thank GFS for hosting us, and the ESRC for their financial support of the event.
Podcasts of the presentations and the ensuing discussions are available by clicking on the links below. Please feel free to leave comments on this blog if you’d like to join the debate!
