You Can’t Motivate Your Child – Karen Gerelus Presentation Slides

On a cold Sunday in January we were pleased to welcome Karen Gerelus, a Calgary educator and researcher, to speak to our ESPS community about her work into motivation among piano students.

Her research demonstrates that we can’t motivate our kids, but we can create an environment which fosters motivation. Using a framework of Self Determination Theory, Karen shared tips and ideas about how to develop intrinsic motivation in students, leading to long-term wellbeing and deeper learning.
