Steps to increase student engagement levels: Opinion


In a recent article for Inside Higher Ed, Jenny Darroch encourages educators to recognize how today’s students engage differently, rather than to blame COVID-19 for declining student engagement. Darroch writes that today’s students are knowledge workers who actively engage in acquiring knowledge and are interested in developing critical thinking skills, conducting research, analyzing data, and applying their learnings. Darroch recommends that institutions take steps to increase engagement levels, including letting students identify tasks to achieve outcomes, providing students with constructive feedback, holding students accountable for their work, expecting innovation and improvement, and encouraging a thirst for learning.
