Using your text and 5 other scholarly sources, construct a 5 page paper (in addition to your title and reference pages) addressing a researched response to the following questions:
- What is student engagement, and why is it important?
- How is engagement created/promoted?
- Is non-organic engagement as effective as organic (i.e., elective participation in a student club verses a required mentoring course)?
- Can true engagement be fostered in the online educational environment?
- What innovative, “outside the box” methods may be used to promote greater student engagement?
