Dr. Won conducts research on academic motivation and self-regulated learning. Specifically, his research has focused on two strands. The first strand centers on extending the understanding of motivation and self-regulated learning and their roles in students’ academic success. The second strand focuses on understanding how students’ perceptions of learning and social contexts influence their motivation and engagement in self-regulated learning. In addition, much of his work has focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) domains, given consistent concerns about the shortage and composition of STEM-capable workers.
