Johnmarshall Reeve

He is Professor of Learning and Development.

His research areas : He studies all aspects of human motivation and emotion. He uses empirical methods to understand from where students' school-based motivation comes, how it changes, why it changes, whether it is of high quality (and educationally constructive) or of low quality (and educationally maladaptive), and what it predicts in terms of classroom engagement, school achievement, and psychologial well-being. He also uses empirical methods to understand a teacher's interpersonal process of nurturing and supporting (vs. neglecting and frustrating) students' motivation, which he conceptualizes along a continuum that ranges from highly controlling to highly autonomy supportive. Because of its many benefits to students, he spends a great deal of time and thought trying to understand and promote teachers' autonomy-supportive motivating style toward during instruction.
