Full-text available
Achievement goals of university instructors for teaching were examined. We investigated the structure of these goals, the stability of this structure across different groups of instructors, and the relations of these goals to teaching-related outcomes. Achievement goals, positive affect, attitudes toward help, and self-reported teaching quality wer...
Article
Studying with digital media, learners often struggle because of inadequate self-regulation. Previous research presented clear evidence of metacognitive prompts being effective in supporting learning with digital media. This study examines the potential of motivational regulation prompts, which are assumed to additionally support self-regulated lear...
Article
Research is often specialized and varies in its nature between disciplines, making it difficult to assess and compare the performance of individual researchers. Specific qualitative and quantitative indicators are usually complex and do not work equally well for different research fields. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to develop an ec...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Previous research has shown that achievement goals affect the frequency of academic dishonesty. However, mixed findings suggest that especially the effect of performance goals might depend on contextual factors. Aims: We wanted to investigate whether crucial aspects of the achievement situation influence the magnitude of the effect o...
Article
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many faculty members were required to abruptly shift from face-to-face to online teaching. Within this, some instructors managed well, while others struggled. To elucidate interindividual differences in online teaching and learning during this unexpected circumstance, we focus on faculty members’ attitudes towa...
Preprint
Research indicates that university faculty struggle with compromised subjective well-being tied to the challenging nature of their work. From a motivational perspective, several cross-sectional studies have found faculty achievement goals to be differentially associated with aspects of their subjective well-being. However, more research is needed t...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research has successfully used basic psychological need satisfaction and achievement goal approaches for describing the motivations of university faculty for teaching and for explaining differences in faculty experiences, success, and learning. However, the interplay between these motivational constructs has been largely ignored, with only...
Article
Full-text available
Aims: Higher education systems around the world have enforced campus closures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Such measures may threaten students' basic psychological needs for relatedness, competence and autonomy, and the development of intrinsic learning motivation. Little is known about whether the implementation of campus closures yielded neg...
Preprint
Es ist ein verbreiteter Mythos, dass für optimales Lernen individuelle Lerntypen (z.B. visuell) identifiziert und gezielt unterstützt werden sollten. Die wissenschaftlichen Befunde zeigen klar, dass eine Ausrichtung von Lernumgebungen an „Lerntypen“ keine förderlichen Effekte hat. Wieso hält sich der Mythos dennoch so hartnäckig und was können wir...

Full-text available
Research shows that higher education faculty face diminished subjective well-being (SWB), leading to negative consequences—not only for themselves, but also for students and institu-tions. Therefore, their ability to cope well with the work demands and responsibilities they face is crucial. Despite the importance of SWB and coping for this populati...
Preprint
Previous research on school teachers has successfully explained individual differences by use of motivational constructs established in other populations, particularly self-efficacy, basic psychological needs (BPNS), and emotions. However, these constructs have primarily been examined independently without considering their interplay, and few studi...
Preprint
Online courses are an important form of educational delivery worldwide, yet there are large differences in how well different participants learn from them. With the present research, we strive to better understand these differences and investigate how they are related to participants’ motivations and learning gains. Following an achievement goal ap...
Article
Teaching quality is a crucial factor within higher education. Research on this topic often requires assessing teaching quality as a global construct through self-reports. However, such instruments are criticized due to the lack of alignment between teacher and student reports of instructional practices. We argue that while teachers might over- or u...
Preprint
Teachers’ achievement goals are important motivational factors underlying differences in their work-related behaviors and cognitions. Within this, it is posited that teachers’ achievement goals also matter for their teaching practices. This important premise for the relevance of teacher goals is still little understood, particularly as most studies...
Article
To elucidate how teachers' goals matter for instructional practices and classroom goal structures, we conducted a study with 84 secondary school teachers and their 1447 students. Students reported classroom goal structures and specific mastery- and performance-oriented instructional practices. Teachers reported personal achievement goals and studen...

We investigated how individual experiences and contextual aspects at the school and country level are associated with teacher intercultural self-efficacy. Using the Teaching and Learning International Survey 2018 (TALIS) data from 91,768 teachers, 11,523 schools, and 46 countries, as well as MIPEX indicators, multilevel models revealed that individ...
Chapter
Students’ achievement goals exhibit maladaptive trends throughout their school careers (particularly a decline in learning goals). We examined how changes in student-perceived teaching practices are associated with this development using longitudinal data from 1847 students in 69 classes (4 measurement points over 2 school years). Latent difference...
Article
Research indicates that faculty members struggle with compromised subjective well-being (SWB). Although motivation is considered central to SWB, little research has investigated this connection in faculty using comprehensive, multifaceted frameworks. To address this, the present study took an achievement goal approach to examining multifaceted SWB...

Full-text available
In den letzten Jahren hat sich „Evidenz“ als Leitbegriff und „Evidenzbasierung“ als Ziel sowohl in der Hochschuldidaktik und -lehre etabliert, als auch zu einer Debatte über das Verständnis vom Evidenzbegriff der Hochschuldidaktik geführt. Weitestgehend unberücksichtigt blieb bisher, was die einzelnen Lehrenden unter „Evidenz“ verstehen. Die vorlie...

Article
Previous studies have shown that highly test anxious persons are more likely to meet criteria for an anxiety disorder and report more frequent symptoms of anxiety disorders than their low test anxious counterparts. However, it is unclear whether test anxiety should be treated as distinct to, or a manifestation of, anxiety disorders. Furthermore, th...

Worldwide, higher education institutions made quick and often unprepared shifts from on-site to online examination in 2020 due to the COVID-19 health crisis. This sparked an ongoing debate on whether this development made it easier for students to cheat. We investigated whether students did indeed cheat more often in online than in on-site exams an...
Preprint
Motivation is posited to be central for faculty members’ professional experiences and performance. To this end, achievement goals have been associated with burnout/engagement and performance at work. However, the few studies that have examined this topic were cross-sectional and only considered one of the two equally important work domains of facul...

University instructors’ goals for teaching are important for teach- ing quality. However, studies examining factors that shape instructors’ goal adoption are lacking. Using data from 785 instructors, we investigated whether implicit theories (ITs) about the malleability of intelligence constitute one such factor. Following achievement goal theory (...
Article
Full-text available
Goals are a core aspect of motivation. Elliot et al. (2015) introduced potential‐based goals as a type of self‐based goals that are conceptualised as seeking to do as well as one possibly could (potential approach goals) or seeking to avoid doing worse than one possibly could (potential avoidance goals). We follow up on this construct by examining...

Preprint
We explore and elaborate on four questions to inspire future research on faculty motivation. The first question asks why we should be concerned with the motivations of higher education faculty in the first place, particularly in regard to studying them empirically? Moreover, if re-search on higher education faculty motivation is important, why is i...
