Synopsis

According to Dewey (1916), "the engagement of the imagination is the only thing that makes any activity more than mechanical". Engagement, in the context of learning, refers to the "emotional and mental energy that students are willing to expend during a learning experience" (Stein & Graham, 2014). Numerous studies have shown that "academic achievement is positively influenced by the amount of active participation in the learning process" (Graham et al., 2007). This 18-hour course focuses on guiding participants through an evidence-based approach to design and develop blended modules that aim to engage learners. Examples of how these principles and strategies are instantiated in various disciplinary domains in university settings will be shared at the session.
