Motivation and Learning
This paper gives a brief introduction of the relationship between motivation and learning, with special focus on association theory, humanistic theory, and cognitive theory. Further discussions on association theory's reinforcement principle, and humanistic theory's need hierarchy are included. Within the cognitive framework, the concepts of achievement motivation, attribution, delay of gratification, curiosity, and intrinsic motivation are also discussed. The relationships of these motivational constructs and processes to learning are highlighted.
