Engaging Students: The Influence of the Student Voice LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

Student engagement is well known to be a key factor in student success in academic courses. While the goal is to have students become active participants in learning mathematical skills and concepts, how that is accomplished can sometimes be elusive. When we survey instructors in STEM disciplines, 86% agree that their students struggle due to inadequate study habits or lack motivation. Research with students reveals more detail about the study habits and behaviors of our students. We will discuss what we have learned through interactions and research with students and what this says about student engagement. Some practical applications are then addressed around class management and course-design across the curriculum.
