As a Level 3, final semester unit, the major project (topic development, book chapter, multimedia presentation) provides a scaffolded "capstone" experience, allowing students to bring together and demonstrate their knowledge and skills to produce useful real-world resources. Consider adding this work to your e-portfolio.

This early assessment exercise builds skills needed for the Book Chapter assessment exercise by developing a plan for the chapter and getting feedback. To do this: Register a Wikiversity account, sign up to an approved topic, create a Wikiversity user page, share a chapter plan (consisting of headings and key points, including at least one relevant image), and provide feedback on the development of at least one another book chapter with this social contribution summarised on your Wikiversity user page.
Record and share an online multimedia presentation up to 3 minutes long about a unique, specific motivation or emotion topic, focusing on key problem(s) and answer(s) provided by psychological science. Address the same topic as covered in the book chapter.
10 hours: 2 hours to learn "how", 6 hours preparation, 2 hours to record & finalise.
Replace a [[User:MyUserName|MyUserName]] with your Wikiversity username e.g., [[User:Jtneill|Jtneill]]
Or email the unit convener to negotiate a topic.
This assessment exercise is explained in Lecture 01 and 02 and Tutorial 01 and 02.
Will more topics be added? Yes, but you are also encouraged to propose unique, specific motivation or emotion topics. To get some ideas, look through book chapters written in previous years and see these links.

These pages are undergoing a massive transformation. Approx. 150 emerging scholars who are studying motivation and emotion at the University of Canberra will each author a freely available online book chapter about how some aspect of our motivational and emotional lives can be better understood and improved. Feel free to comment or improve on the work so far.
