We are excited to welcome you to the 7th annual Conference on Motivation at University of South-Eastern Norway.
The basis of the conference is Self-Determination Theory. Self-Determination Theory is a motivational theory with a wide application area and has gained increasingly attention both nationally and internationally. The Conference on Motivation 2018 has its main focus on motivation in three contexts – work organizations, healthcare, and education.
To talk about the theory and the three fields of research, we have also this year the worlds’ leading researchers in the field attending and speaking at the conference. Professor Edward L. Deci, one of the founders of the theory, will start the conference. Professor Geoffrey C. Williams will start the session on health by talking about the use of interventions based on Self-Determination Theory in health promotion work. Associate Professor Christopher P. Niemiec will start the session on education and, in particular, address application of the theory in higher education.
In addition, at this year’s conference, we have 10 new studies based on Self-Determination Theory, tied to applications of the theory in work, health, and education.
We look forward to meeting you at the conference to share new knowledge about motivation!
