More than ever before, college and university instructors are faced with a challenge of student engagement. In the traditional face-to-face classroom, instructor questions are often met with silence. In the online classroom, student passivity is revealed in a variety of ways: silence in Zoom video conferencing, lack of iLearn login, failure to submit assignments and limited words in a discussion board threads.

There are many suggested ways to encourage active participation in the higher ed classroom, face-to-face and online. This ALC will share some research that shows the results of student engagement activities along with effective methods for enhancing student engagement in your courses.
