Lectures rarely provide optimal learning environments that secure effective, sustained learning outcomes. Online learning requires classrooms designed to engage learners and build a sense of ownership of their knowledge.
As we explore the future of learning in higher education post-pandemic, what do we need to know about student engagement? How do we design our classes and the learning experience to balance what we need to teach with engaged learning?
We must ask ourselves: Are student engagement and activity-based learning possible in all subjects? What does the research tell us about student engagement? What are some of the cautions about student engagement we should be aware of?
In this interactive webinar, Dr. Amy Sloan brings to the table her considerable experience in program and course design and a strong focus on non-traditional adult learners.
In this webinar, participants explore:
- Why student engagement is a critical variable in student success and what this means for course design and delivery
- Examples of effective student engagement
- The five Cs of student engagement: connection, consistency, content, community, and compassion
- The pitfalls of designs for engagement and the importance of tying active learning to learning outcomes
