This seminar discusses rationales and approaches for using learning technologies on campus to engineer an engaged student experience. It begins by exploring contemporary forces shaping campus-based higher education, looking in particular at the influence of learning technologies. I then unpack the concept of student engagement, drawing on theories and findings from a decade of large-scale research in Australia and abroad. I conclude with suggestions for how academic and support staff can use learning technologies to enhance students’ engagement in campus-based higher education.
