“Student engagement is a process and a product that is experienced on a continuum and results from the synergistic interaction between motivation and active learning.”
Barkley, E. F. (2010) Student Engagement Techniques
Helped me make connections between a serious academic curriculum and my own personal life, values, and experiences
Worked with me one-on-one outside of class
Asked questions or posed problems that helped me learn to think like a professional in my field
Encouraged students to disagree with them, as part of teaching them how to think like professionals
Taught students the importance of evidence, how to collect it, and how to use it to make decisions
Engaged students in the learning process
