Overview

The Achievement Motivation and Emotion (AME) Research Group under the direction of Nathan C. Hall 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.
