Student success can be heavily tied to their level of engagement. On the part of educator and the learner – in an effort to find success and get the student to be engaged – this can mean a lot of hard work. This can be especially challenging if the learner feels dissatisfied, pays little attention and gets no gratification from their learning experience. As an educator, it is important to foster an environment where a student starts thinking like the owner of their education to improve learner outcomes.
In this session, participants will:
- Examine the reasons students struggle to achieve success in their education.
- Explore strategies that will help students take ownership of their learning
- Outline ways to increase support services for increased student engagement and interaction.
