Students who are… …engaged in the classroom – pass; …engaged in their academic program - return; …engaged in deep learning – graduate. What constitutes engagement? Leading researchers define engagement as “…student’s involvement…in academic work or in the academic experience…” (Pascarella & Terenzini, 1991) College teachers define engagement as “…students trying to make meaning out of learning” or who are “involved in the academic task at hand are using higher- order thinking skills…” (Barkley, 2009). NSSE defines engagement is “…the frequency with which students participate in activities that represent effective educational practices…” (Barkley, 2010)
High impact practices that are used to encourage student engagement are … First year experiences; Common intellectual experiences; Learning communities Writing intensive courses Collaborative assignments & projects UG research Diversity / Global Learning Academic Service Learning Community based research Internships Capstone courses & projects
Conditions that mark high impact educational practices: Academically challenging environment that infuses active & collaborative learning Educational experiences that are meaningful and relevant Relevant learning context, how what they learn applies to work and life. Experiences that put students in situations of purposeful interaction with faculty and peers. Introduction of the ‘other’ – circumstances, people, ideas, beliefs different than their own. Early and often feedback from faculty, peers, internship supervisors
