Increasing Student Engagement and Motivation (Mini-Course)

Grad Credits: 2    Term End Date: Aug 20, 2021


When we think about engaging and motivating students through the use of rigorous lessons, an aspect that we must attend to is the context in which students are learning. What we mean here by context is the setting, situation, or role that students engage with and/or take on when learning and applying new understandings. In this course, we will look at how to engage and motivate students to reach their highest potentials. By creating a rigorous environment for students, through teaching and learning experiences, we promote engagement and motivation in the most natural way. Teachers will examine issues to increase active student engagement in learning and enhance motivation.
