Book club to meet
Join the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning, the Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education and Academic Technology Services for a discussion about how UD students are engaged in their education and find out why engagement has become a central question in higher education.
There will be an examination of how student engagement is understood by higher education scholars at the national level and practitioners at UD. "Our understanding of student engagement is closely tied to the context in which we live and work so we will work toward a common understanding of student engagement so we can apply those principles to activities in attendees’ disciplines and units," a program organizer said.
