Leaders

The main objective of this Academy Research Fellow project (2022–2027) funded by the Academy of Finland, is to examine the developmental and situational dynamics between students’ motivation, perfectionism, and academic well-being across upper secondary education, and to consider the role of student welfare in supporting students’ learning and well-being.

A four-year longitudinal data on the development of students’ motivation, perfectionism, and academic well-being will be collected and complemented with city- and school-level information on student welfare, and in-the-moment measures of students’ situational motivation and emotions (i.e., experience sampling data).

The theoretically integrative perspective and the project design enable us to uncover motivational dynamics that contribute to student well-being, both longitudinally and situationally. The knowledge and understanding yielded will be topical in the current societal situation and important for developing student welfare.
