As an ideal teachers want their students to be engaged. However, it is not straightforwardly obvious what we mean by engagement. Colloquially we might say that students are engaged when they are attentive, active, involved and committed to their learning. However, a colloquial understanding of engagement does not provide a theoretical framework for developing engaging learning environments. In this seminar Dr. Iain Doherty will present a theoretical framework for understanding the component parts of student engagement. Reference will be made to who technologies can be leveraged to engage students.
