Seminar Title / ناونیشانی بابەت / عنوان الندوة :
The impact of student-engagement on students’ performance
Abstract / پوختە / الملخص :
“In our past school time, most of our teachers followed traditional methods of teaching; the teacher was the center of explaining and doing all the talking and we were usually quiet and passive during classes. In contemporary period, it is crucial to realize that this can’t be implemented with generation z and alpha who are active and don’t want to sit in classes silently for 40 minutes. Therefore, teachers must not follow completely the same methods their lecturers used because this kills students’ motivation, enthusiasm, and overall learning.
The seminar entitled, the impact of student-engagement on students’ performance, sheds light on the significance of involving students in our classrooms. It is well noted by some researchers that increased amount of engagement by schools and institutions will lead to significant positive impacts on students’ overall learning and outcomes. Another benefit of increased level of engagement with the course content results in students’ better knowledge acquisition and general cognitive growth. Last but not least, researchers found that it reduces the rate of K-12 dropouts.
This seminar also focuses om the three dimensions of student engagement which are behavioral, emotional, and cognitive engagement. Various means of involving students in classroom will be explained which teachers can implement in their classrooms to improve student engagement. The matter whether the curriculum must be changed to fit student engagement will be discussed as well.”
