The Theory of engagement is based on: Motivation the idea that when students find lessons meaningful and have a high level of interest in the tasks, they learn more effectively, tend to retain the information, and are able to transfer it to other contexts.
  4. 4. Principles of Engaged Learning 1. Relate: learning through collaboration Activities should emphasize team efforts which emphasize communication, management, planning, and social skills When students are able to discuss and defend their ideas motivation to learn increases (Kearsley & Shneiderman, 1998)
  5. 5. Principles of Engaged Learning contd. 2. Create: learning using a project-based approach Activities should be “creative” and “purposeful” When students have opportunities to define, organize and complete their own projects, they develop a sense of ownership of the project and of their own learning (Kearsley & Shneiderman, 1998)
  6. 6. Principles of Engaged Learning contd. 3. Donate: learning using an outside (authentic) focus Activities should have a meaningful and realistic focus “ideally each project has an outside ‘customer’ such as a campus group, community organization, school, church, library, museum, government agency, local business, or needy individual” When students engage in realistic projects, they can be better prepared when they enter the workforce in a given field. (Kearsley & Shneiderman, 1998)
