How to Create and Sustain Student Engagement

Time: 2/3/2005 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Miller Hall 160

Extensive research shows that students who actively participate in their own learning experience have greater academic success. What can faculty members do to boost student engagement in their own classrooms? This workshop, which is co-facilitated by faculty member Joyce Hammond and other faculty and students, offers creative, effective and straightforward approaches, techniques, and assignments for enhancing an interactive dynamic for student learning inside and outside the classroom. Workshop participants will practice strategies to promote community within the classroom and discuss effective methods to help create good interactive dynamics in a variety of learning situations. This workshop is part of this year's First Thursdays Faculty Development Workshop Series co-sponsored by the CII and TLA.
