How To Increase Student Engagement (12:15)

Student engagement can take on a different meaning or focus depending on the context of your goals. For some, the goal may be to understand early on what fundamentally motivates students, whether intrinsically or extrinsically, to acquire new knowledge and skills. For others, the focus may be relative to a specific lesson or activity during which capturing and retaining student attention "in the moment" is the most immediate concern.

Here are six factors to consider in designing lessons to help increase student engagement behaviorally, emotionally, and cognitively.

  1. MAKE IT MEANINGFUL
  2. FOSTER A SENSE OF COMPETENCE
  3. PROVIDE AUTONOMY SUPPORT
  4. EMBRACE COLLABORATIVE LEARNING
  5. ESTABLISH POSITIVE TEACHER-STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS
  6. PROMOTE MASTERY ORIENTATIONS
