Teacher actions can influence how students engage [with a course], making it relevant to understand their conceptions of student engagement and how to facilitate it,”

Cited From: http://www.opencolleges.edu.au/informed/features/student-engagement/#ixzz3S1EF19HV


Engagement is more than just sitting and looking attentive. I like how the focus is on what the teacher can do and examines the general beliefs and misconc ptions around engagement through the lens of research.

“ Two schools are both alike in dignity. Part of our story takes place in Jersey City, NJ while the other part takes place 32 miles away in Roslyn, NY. Some would argue that this is the best of times and the worst of times in education.
