Classroom Discussions that Engage Learners

Have you read the 2006 National Survey of Student Engagement? Bowling Green State University is listed as one of the 557 participating four-year institutions. The report surveyed first year and senior students and found student engagement to be positively related to grades. The survey also found that students only spend around 13-14 hours a week preparing for their classes.

We’d like to hear from the BGSU community what kinds of engagement strategies are being used during classroom discussions and for class assignments. To add your ideas to the discussion, click on the “Comments” link below.
