Engaged Learning Experience
Southeast Community College presented a statewide professional development project to introduce, demonstrate, and facilitate the use of “Engaged Learning.” These methods of teaching/learning encourage a high level of student engagement and interaction both inside and outside the classroom. The project goal was to improve student learning by equipping faculty to successfully implement engaged learning tools and techniques in their classrooms. SCC’s own experience with Engaged Learning has shown promise in improved test scores and more enthusiastic participation by students and faculty alike.
