Series: Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World
BISAC: EDU032000

The need to engage students is a common theme within higher education. However, the exact meaning of engagement is itself more nebulous. Engagement may be thought of as how much effort and active learning students make with their studies. There are some approaches to categorising and measuring engagement that can be helpful when planning teaching and learning and the supporting activities. The opportunity to monitor attendance, attempts at formative work and accessing course materials offered by computer based and supported learning environments provides new opportunities to measure engagement. This book discusses leadership practices, perspectives and the impact of technology on student engagement in schools. (Imprint: Nova)
