    • 1. Goal Orientation
    • 2. Goals• A goal is something we work towards• We all have goals
    • 3. Goal Orientation• A psychological construct that looks to understand the attitudes and behaviours that people embrace to reach their goals.• It’s a mental framework that describes what motivates people to perform certain tasks, and what they aim to achieve in those tasks.
    • 4. Dweck’s Orientations• Performance Oriented • Approach tasks with the aim of gaining approval from peers and teachers• Learning Oriented • Approach tasks with the aim of mastering or acquiring new skills
    • 5. Performance Orientation• Desire a high level of performance• Seek positive reinforcement and feedback• Tend not to put much effort in unless being evaluated.• Tend to avoid tasks where they may be poorly evaluated.
    • 6. Learning Orientation• Attention is focused towards self improvement.• Seek feedback on tasks to evaluate current performance.• Focus on skill and knowledge acquisition.• Less concerned with being seen to err.
    • 7. Achievement• Utman, C. H. (1997) did a meta-analysis of previous studies.• Found the learning goals lead to better task performance.• Learning orientation leads to more time being spent on challenging tasks.
    • 8. confirmation• multiple studies confirm this factor• Elliot & Dweck (1988)• Archer (1999)
    • 9. People shift• as they age, people tend to shift towards performance orientation
    • 10. Self-Awareness• Think about what motivates you• ask yourself: “am I doing this to learn, or to demonstrate something”• don’t just do the minimum• do all of the optional extras• work at home!
