Self-Determination Theory - Part 4: Beyond Rewards and Punishments

December 18, 2019

This week, Jai and Deb finish mapping out the Motivation Continuum that we started discussing in Part 3 of this series, focusing on the four types of extrinsic motivation. Downloading the PDF of this continuum may be helpful. Join us as we explore the hidden costs of using rewards and punishments and what it looks like to move beyond that to more integrated forms of extrinsic motivation.
