Student engagement is a great buzzword in education now, and of great interest to all of us as we want our students to be engaged. In 2017, Ann Wilson presented at a student engagement conference in Manchester UK, and this webinar is a version of her presentation.
In this recording, Ann explores the six elements that are used to measure engagement (as identified by the Australasian University Student Survey on Engagement).
- Academic challenge: the level to which the assessments and activities challenge students to learn.
- Active learning: the extent to which students are active participants in the construction of their knowledge.
- Student/teacher interactions: the frequency and types of student teacher interactions.
- Educational experience: the breadth of educational activities
- Supportive learning environment: how much the student feels part of the educational institution.
- Work integrated learning: the extent to which there is an employment focus in the educational process.
