About this talk

Clinical Professor and Program Coordinator of the Adolescent Special Education program at CUNY-Hunter College, Dr. Gina Riley talked about intrinsic motivation, self-determination theory and cognitive evaluation theory at the Homeschooling Global Summit 2020. ⁠She talks about how facilitation and not merely teaching helps kids develop their intrinsic motivation and love for learning and exploration. She discusses the 3 tenets of cognitive evaluation theory that develops children's courage and cofidence: a sense of competence, a sense of autonomy, and a sense of relatedness and acceptance. no matter what.

Dr. Riley has extensive experience in online education and distance learning at the college/university level, with researches concentrated on topics relating to homeschooling, unschooling, and intrinsic motivation/self-determination; an interest stemmed in part from unschooling her own child from birth – 12th grade. Recent peer-reviewed articles have focused on young adult unschooling outcomes, homeschooling and intrinsic motivation, unschoolers who also identify as LGBTQ, and how unschoolers learn to read. Her first book, Unschooling: Exploring Learning Beyond the Classroom, will be published this year.⁠

This interview was presented at the Homeschooling Global Summit 2020 organized by Galileo - the self-directed online global school. Learn more at https://2020.hgsummit.com/.
