Activating Student Engagement through Choice in Learning
Student engagement is central to effective teaching and learning. Teachers often struggle to maintain student engagement which may result in low achievement and increased behavioral problems. An effective means of increasing engagement is to integrate choice into learning activities so that students can pursue their own interests and goals in the classroom. This requires teachers to build relationships of trust and understanding, inviting students to share their passions and intentions as part of the process of planning and preparing for engaging learning activities.
When teachers leverage student choice to promote intrinsic motivation and strengthen student engagement, teaching becomes more sustainable and joyful! Join this webinar to learn strategies to mindfully integrate student choice into teaching and learning from expert educators from Moreland University’s teacher-preparation program.
