Enhancing Online Student Engagement

October 7, 2012

Engagement may be a precursor to meaningful interaction among classmates, and between
instructors and students. Disengaged students often have limited interaction with
course materials. Online educators may need to deliberately incorporate learning activities
aimed at increasing student engagement. Arts-based learning activities can foster
student social and academic engagement as they assist students and instructors in becoming
more “real” to one another in the online learning milieu. Examples of arts-based
learning activities that may facilitate student engagement include Photo Cascades, “My”
Music Moments, and Word Sculptures.
