  8. 8. Conclusions •  The application of the PAD framework opens a novel view to study the role of affective experiences of students in a higher education setting: ü  Teaching staff and their attitude towards students create the peak experiences, both in good and in bad, and in all three dimensions of the PAD framework ü  A non-motivated teacher causes not only non-arousal experience among students, but also certainly non-pleasure and most likely even non-dominance experience ü  Teaching staff plays the single most important factor in creating student engagement – if the teacher is able to first create positive affective experience 12/09/16 8
  9. 9. Future Work Real-time measurement of affective experiences in learning and teaching
