Integrating Motivational Career Development Curriculum into College Classroom Instruction
Many college students ponder on the notion of “what to do when I grow up”. Yet, integrating motivational instruction aiding student’s gainful entrance into the workplace is not the singular responsibility of career and/or academic advisors. Albert Bandura’s seminal social cognitive theory provides methodologies to improve student academic behavior, motivation and self-efficacy. Utilizing aspects of Bandura’s social cognitive theory, the learning objectives of this interactive microlearning roundtable are for part-time, full-time, and adjunct faculty to be able to integrate four motivational career development best practices: ponder, plan, persist, and praise, within instruction. The roundtable will underscore strategies for faculty to coalesce career development curriculum into existing college classroom instruction.
