Technologies and Strategies for Engaging Students

 

Engaging students in the learning process is critical for their success, especially in an online or hybrid teaching environment where instructors and learners are not physically present in the same room. When students are engaged in meaningful learning activities, they tend to be more focused and motivated to learn. Considering the mismatch between the length of a typical class session (1-3 hours) and the average student attention span (about 15 minutes), we need to be creative in getting and keeping students engaged. 

What types of strategies and activities can we use to create engaging learning experiences?  In the following modules, you will learn how to leverage various technologies and strategies to facilitate engaging learning activities inside and outside of classes.
