Focus Areas and the Momentum Year Webinar

As institutions develop their plans for the Momentum Year, the most frequently raised questions involve the development and implementation of Focus Areas (sometimes called meta-majors).  To help answer some of these questions, the University System of Georgia hosted a web conference on focus area development and implementation on Friday, April 20 with representatives from Columbus State where a focus area model has been in place for a several  years, and Nikolas Huot of Complete College America and formerly of Georgia State University.

Stephanie Wormington

My research examines the nature and impact of students’ achievement motivation, or reasons for trying in school. Specifically, I aim to (1) document motivation trajectories across development, (2) explore personal and situational mechanisms through which motivation changes, and (3) design interventions tailored to the individual and learning context. Much of my research employs person-oriented analyses, which I use to understand students’ motivation and inform how interventions can be customized to meet students’ unique needs.
