Venue: Room H.001, Campus H, UEH School of Economics, 1A Hoang Dieu street, ward 10, Phu Nhuan district, HCMC
The language of presentation: Vietnamese
Dr. Thuỳ Vy Nguyễn will talk about the theoretical framework that has shaped most of her research questions, the Self-Determination Theory (SDT). SDT is a theory about human motivation. At the core, the theory explains why we do what we do and what are the ingredients for healthy motivation and psychological wellness. Initially developed by Drs. Edward L. Deci and Richard M. Ryan, SDT has been elaborated and refined by a network of scholars around the world. Specifically in this talk, Dr. Nguyễn will discuss how SDT has been used as the framework to understand how teachers can help their students to engage in deep, meaningful learning, what make organizations succeed at supporting their employees’ well-being and reduce physical illness, and why some people achieve their goals and live a healthy, fulfilling life.
