Student Engagement: A Multidimensional Perspective
Session Time and Location
The concept of student engagement has played an increasingly significant role in efforts to understand and improve university student learning and persistence as well as overall institutional quality. I will present a multidimensional model that expands the definition and application of student engagement in higher education and discusses the increasingly important need for engaging today’s university student. The impact of student engagement in learning, teaching and research as well as with faculty, community and other students is explored and suggestions are provided as to how the entire academic community can support these activities.
