Intrinsic And Extrinsic Motivation Among English Language Learning Writers In Japan
J. A. Duplice
Rikkyo University, Japan
This talk will describe a research project investigating intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in writing among university English language learners in Japan. The project covers the findings from an academic literature review and the results from a short research project on the differences of cultural expectations and the mindsets of individual learners in Japan compared with other learner groups. Specific focus of the research is on the role of short-term performance based extrinsic motivation coming from tests, grades, cultural expectations, and teacher expectations vs. intrinsic motivation of the learner.
