The Center for Teaching Excellence and the Quality Enhancement Plan Taskforce recently hosted a Lunch & Learn titled “Aiding Students with Resources and Active Engagement” to stimulate faculty discussion concerning finding and using strategies, methods, and technologies for increasing student engagement with course content.
Thirty-nine Shorter University faculty and staff attended presentations on a variety of topics related to facilitating active student engagement: Subject Relevance and Active Student Engagement by Dr. Bill Mullen, Technology and Active Student Engagement by Dr. Nicole Vanderbush, The Use of Textbooks and Test Questions by Mrs. Lisa Keith, and Plagiarism by Dr. Christine Szostak. The presentations generated lively and insightful discussion that resulted in numerous ideas, suggestions and technologies for enhancing the learning experience for both instructor and student alike.
