The Achievement Motivation and Emotion (AME) Research Group under the direction of Nathan C. Hall (curriculum vitae, course syllabi) explores the psychosocial determinants of optimal development in academic and health contexts, with a specific focus on higher education (undergraduates, graduate students, faculty) and K-12 teachers. Ongoing projects explore the structure, effects, and self-regulation of motivation (e.g., strategies, goals, beliefs) and emotions (e.g., boredom, enjoyment, anger), as well as the development and evaluation of motivational interventions (e.g., via digital/social media), as predictors of psychological well-being, physical health, persistence, and achievement.
