Student Engagement Paper Instructions

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?
