Engaging teachers, engaging students: Reflections on an engagement conference

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.
