Getting Your School Engaged

Engagement matters: if you don’t feel engaged in what you’re doing, you won’t care about it, and you’re unlikely to succeed. If you aren’t engaged in your learning in school, this is likely to affect not only your academic achievement, but also your future engagement in work, and in your community. This session will provide education professionals with tried-and-tested strategies for raising student engagement that they can take back to their schools, through a set of discussions and exercises that model engaging approaches to teaching and learning. During the session, each participant will develop their own plans for creating engaging learning experiences. At the end of the session, participants will receive a set of free tools for creating engaging learning.
