Self Determination Theory
My project for the summer (or as we call it in Scotland the time when it’s a bit hotter when it rains) is to learn more about Self Determination Theory. Specifically, it’s application to physical activity adherence research. This is made easier by the fact that one of the most prolific writers in the area Dr Martin Hagger generously has a site where you can read most of his publication without the usually required journal subscriptions. Seems to me a bit obvious really, if you want to educate you need to let as many people as possible read your work. Dr Hagger's publications can be read and downloaded here. He also has published several books which i would also highly recommend. If you have any good links for Self Determination Theory please post them here and I will work through them.
