LO 1: Participants gain an understanding of the three measures of student engagement: intellectual, social and institutional, as presented in the TTFM survey.
The facilitator introduces the three steps in Lipton and Wellman’s Collaborative Learning Cycle to provide a framework for and support the day’s learning objectives.
The three measures of student engagement are reviewed before looking at what the research says about engagement and the connection with student success. Willms work on identifying trends and early signs of disengagement are explored.
The driving questions for the morning’s session are:
What do we know about engagement?
How do we know about engagement (Mode of inquiry)?
Why is engagement important?
Activity 1 - Knowledge Activation: What do you know about engagement? Participants are asked to individually brainstorm all they know about engagement, compare and contrast definitions of engagement, and pick three ideas to share with the whole group.
TTFM’s social engagement model is presented to participants and each of the three domains are broken down into various measures. Intellectual and institutional engagement are also explored in more detail.
