Nerd Research Minute – June 27 – Student Engagement

Continuing the Emphasis on Student Engagement:

“How do I engage with my students?” remains one of the top questions from faculty from K-13+.  Whether they learn online or onsite, aengaged student is more likely to internalize content and persist in their learning (Chen, Guidry, & Lambert, 2009).

In Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education, Chickering and Gamson (1987) detail education should promote 1. student-faculty interaction
2. cooperation among students
3. active learning
4. prompt feedback
5. time on task
6. high expectations
7. respect for diverse talents and ways of learning
