Creating Flow State

Professor and students enjoy interactions in a mediated classroom

In this workshop, Jeremy Dearman, lecturer in UNI Success Courses @ ASU, will present an overview of the concept of flow state. Then, we will discuss the factors that Csikszentmihalyi proposed to be core to creating flow state: a balance between challege and skill, clear goals, and unambiguous feedback (Csikszentmihalyi, 1975, 1990).

Challenge-skill balance will be explored as a dominant factor in creating flow state. We will brainstorm and discuss strategies for challenge-skill balancing.

The Progressive Pedagogy Series is organized for the greater Arizona State University teaching community by UNI Success Courses @ ASU, a unit of ASU's University College. In these professional development workshops, presenters draw from progressive pedagogical (ProPed) techniques, designed to support student success and retention.
