Student Engagement in College: The Heartbeat of Student Success (Part One of Two)
This is a two-part webinar series that challenges faculty and administrators to examine their levels of engagement in their community, committees, and student clubs. The webinar facilitator helps participants understand how their personal values correlate to their success in academia and demonstrates how to collaborate and develop partnerships with support services. By the end of these webinars, participants are able to apply methodological strategies to innovative teaching practices and implement new strategies that increase student and faculty engagement.
This first of the two webinars outlines key areas that align student engagement, theories, and methodology that are useful for increasing student success in and out of the classroom. Webinar participants discuss active-learning techniques, GRIT, building rapport with students, principles of effective coaching and facilitation, providing emotional support, and how to keep things in perspective. The webinar facilitator explores how these areas are supported by Bloom’s Taxonomy, Dewey’s Learning Theory, and Skinner’s Operant Conditioning. The webinar facilitator has used these theories to enhance collaboration among faculty, help students overcome challenges by teaching them success principles, create a learner-centered classroom with active and adaptive learning techniques, and increase learning by using her curriculum design theoretical experience.
