“It is Week 9 and attendance at my lectures has dropped by 57%. Where are they?”
This can be a familiar refrain in the later weeks of any term. So, where are our high-flying students? Is their attendance at lectures essential for engagement with learning? Is attendance something that should more strictly policed? Is it ever appropriate to give marks for attendance? What does it take to engage the ‘modern’ student?
At this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to engage with some of the literature regarding student motivation and questions of attendance, discuss what factors can affect student engagement, and share their experiences of managing student learning.
