The difference between doing something and doing something well is often down to a peculiar human quality called motivation. Sometimes it actually influences whether or not we do something at all, and for teams, projects and organisations it can be nothing less than the breakpoint between success and failure.
But what is it? What is this hidden energy and how does it work? And, more specifically, how does it work and manifest itself in the context of higher education? Ahead of the event, read our blog 'How do we get people engaged?'.
Date: 14 Jan 2020, Hotel Novotel, Bristol
Time: 10am - 4pm GMT
During this one-day event, we will survey our own motivations, share insights, hear from experienced colleagues contrasting stories of motivation and engagement, consider the facets of higher education, both ancient and modern, that influence how motivation works, review some established and emerging thinking, play with giant carrots, and work together creatively to develop our own models of motivation to help unlock this vexing puzzle.
Our speakers include:
Paul Blackmore, Professor of Higher Education, The Policy Institute, King's College London
Shraddha Chaudhary, Communications and Engagement Officer, University of Exeter
Jim Longhurst, Professor of Environmental Science and Assistant Vice - Chancellor for Environment and Sustainability at UWE, Bristol.
