Engagement research
  • Engagement occurs when
    • Ss believe that they are capable of doing whatever is being demonstrated,
    • learning whatever is being demonstrated has some potential value, purpose, and use for Ss,
    • Ss are free from anxiety, and
    • Ss feel that they are respected, admired, and trusted

(Cambourne, 1995)

Open tasks encourage engagement because they provide opportunities for

    • pursuing personal interests, and
    • social collaboration.
