6 Ways to Promote Student Engagement

  1. 1. 6 Ways to Promote Student Engagement
  2. 2. Engaged students are more likely to participate in class, retain information, and be more confident learners. So how do you create a stimulating learning environment that fosters student interaction? Here are six helpful strategies from instructors in our WileyPLUS community that you can begin to implement right away.
  3. 3. Be available. Schedule and announce regular office hours so that your students know when you are available for extra help. Students often feel more comfortable talking to their instructors outside of class, so get to class early and linger for a few minutes after to signal to them that you welcome individual questions.
  4. 4. Plan group work. Encourage students to work together in small groups of four or fewer students. To achieve this, you can give group quizzes that allow them to talk to each other to find the answers without relying on their notes. Also consider assigning group projects that must be completed outside of class using collaboration tools like GoogleDocs. If students need extra help, suggest that they form small study groups that can meet regularly after class.
  5. 5. Create a friendly environment. Kick off the semester with an ice-breaker game where students ask each other questions (have each student find at least two other students with similar study habits or interests). You can also arrange desks in a circle to create a natural setting for discussion and collaboration. Consider grouping students together who do not know each other outside of class to help them expand their peer resource group.
  6. 6. Keep the conversation going. Incorporate content discussions in every lecture, set aside time for brainstorming sessions, and ask open-ended questions—but make sure to wait for an answer before moving on. Discussion boards work great because students can post their own work or research as well as read and reply to other posts. For online courses, plan assignments that require either phone calls between students or online conferencing.
  7. 7. Expand their circles. Ask students to attend professional events together, which will encourage them to begin networking with peers and potential employers. They can also volunteer with professional organizations, attend chapter meetings, or participate in community-based projects as part of the course. This type of experience both instills confidence and helps them start preparing for their future professions.
  8. 8. Reward collaborative behavior. One idea is to give students colored cards with their names on them and mark a point on the cards when they participate in class. Collect the cards at the end of each class and tally the students’ “credit” for the week, which could translate into extra credit points on a test or a whole-class reward like free time or a special guest speaker.
  9. 9. These tips and strategies were gathered from instructors in the WileyPLUS Studio, an online community of educators who connect, collaborate, and share ideas using activities related to WileyPLUS. wileyplus.com
