I decided to choose one aspect of Malcolm Knowles’ assumptions on adult learning and research motivation specifically for this infographic. I was surprised to find many theories that have to do with motivation such as the self-efficacy theory and self-determination theory among others. I found the subject to be engaging because I’m curious as to what drives me in addition to what drives adult learners.
The infographic I’ve created provides a brief insight into this subject. I highly recommend the reference that I’ve listed if you are seeking a better understanding of motivation. What I have realized is my motives cross over in all of these six areas and are determined by what it is I’m learning, i.e., I would love to master playing the piano.
