Empowering Students to Learn Conference, Oakland University, May 15, 2014

effective college instructors
Effective College Instructors …
  • acknowledge that they have a responsibility to teach in ways that inspire a liking for course content;
  • communicate their love of the field and subject matter;
  • employ strategies that engage and encourage students to study hard, understand and persist in the face of obstacles

Therefore, instructors can reasonably be judged not only in terms of their students’ course achievement but also with respect to their students’ levels of engagement and motivation to achieve in the content area.

agentic engagement
Agentic Engagement

Link to Sameroff’s Transactional Model: Children and contexts shape each other.

Agentic engagement is defined as “Students’ constructive contribution into the flow of the instruction they receive” (Reeves & Tseng, 2011).

Scale Items for the AE Construct

During class, I ask questions.

I tell my teacher what I like and what I don’t like.

I let my teacher know what I’m interested in.

During class, I express my preferences and opinions.

I offer suggestions about how to make the class better.

Overview of Achievement GoalsGoals are the purposes that students see in doing schoolwork.Learners constantly ask themselves: ‘Why am I doing this?’

implications and takeaways
Implications and Takeaways
  • The construct of agentic engagement reflects a paradigm shift. Students come with a mental model of a university course that does not include them in its shaping. Students create motivationally supportive learning environments for themselves.
  • The vital importance of the first day! If students are to become agentically-engaged, the conditions that facilitate those qualities must be present from day one. What strategies might an instructor employ in the first class to support agentic engagement?
  • This conference is focused on student empowerment. Is agentic engagement a form of empowerment?
