o Example from humanism: motivational theories of learning (e.g. self-determination theory, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs), experiential learning, and Steiner pedagogy or Waldorf education.
• List and explain a minimum of two theoretically supported strategies from the past weeks that would most help you to increase your learning success.
o Apply basic methods of psychological research skills to this content by synthesizing supporting evidence from at least two scholarly sources from the University of Arizona Global Campus Library in order to defend the strategies you have chosen.
