Motivation, Engagement and Individual Choice Pathways Network


Our network offers a coherent identity and collegial support structure for academics and research students who have affiliated interests in motivation, engagement and individual choice pathways informed by psychological lenses. A shared aim is research capacity-building among the group, including in advanced research methods.
Academics associated with the network conduct descriptive, longitudinal, intervention and mixed-methods research, to understand:

  • how to engage all learners in educational settings
  • influences on educational outcomes, life trajectories and occupational opportunities
  • what sustains individuals across their working lives.
