THEME: Student engagement: From the classroom to the workplace
The facilitation of student engagement and motivation in their learning and self development requires a carefully crafted curriculum: one that allows student ownership and active participation in their journey through formal education and beyond. How can educators design and implement classroom activities (physical, online or blended) and assessments to facilitate and reward student engagement and encourage ownership of learning and graduate attributes? From school outreach and transition to the hybrid classroom and the workplace, ACSME will build on the shared experience and expertise of the conference participants to guide and mentor attendees towards the development of strategies to ensure success, enduring understanding and a love of science and mathematics in our students.
