Book: Building Autonomous Learners

Self-determination theory is applicable to many areas of life. Education is a good example. There is a new book which deals specifically with this area of application: Building autonomous learners. Perspectives from Research and Practice using Self-Determination Theory.

The book contains not only contributions from well-known Western researchers such as Ed Deci, Richard Ryan, Maarten Vansteenkiste, Johnmarshall Reeve, and Avi Assor, but also from members of the Motivation in Educational Research Lab, in Singapore. Themes which are discussed are: how can build motivating contexts in classrooms, what role can parents play, what the influence of teachers' motivation is, and how we can create a passion for learning.
