We were pleased to welcome Dr. Bonni Stachowiak, who is an adjunct for us in the Ed.D. program, a professor at Vanguard, and a prolific podcaster. The following was the topic of our discussion:

It can be challenging to engage learners. There are plentiful opportunities for distraction. Today’s students are juggling multiple priorities and come from such diverse contexts and cultures. It can also be difficult to make our class content meaningful and relevant for our students.

In this session, we will explore how to heighten the likelihood that students will engage in their learning in our classes. We will determine:

  • Where we have the greatest leverage
  • How and why to bring the element of surprise into our teaching
  • Methods to use technology to engage
  • When and how to put the tech away and go analog
  • Bring a smartphone or a tablet to this session to take on a learner’s perspective when using educational technology.
