Self-Efficacy
According to Albert Bandura,
self-efficacy is "the belief in one’s
capabilities to organize and
execute the courses of action
required to manage
prospective situations."
(1994)
Basically....
a belief in
oneself!
Motivation
Motivation is defined as the process that
initiates, guides and maintains goal-
oriented behaviors.
Motivation is what causes us
to act, whether it is getting a
glass of water to reduce
thirst or reading a
book to gain
knowledge.
In this course, you have learned about academic
skills that will keep you organized and will
help you earn good grades. You have
also taken an inventory that
assessed your abilities. Now,
we will explore what else you
need to know in order to be
successful!
