The Theory and Practice of Motivating Students

In this paper, “A Primer for Engineering Teaching Assistants,” delivered at ASEE’s 2012 Conference in San Antonio, Ana T. Torres-Ayala, a doctoral candidate in higher education at the University of South Florida, and Geoffrey L. Herman, a postdoctoral researcher at the Illinois Foundry for Engineering Education, present the basics of motivation theories and how they can be used to inform and direct TAs work with engineering students.
