If you feel as though you are struggling to engage your students, you’re not alone: the problem is a national one. But there are ways that you can diagnose what is going on in your classroom and build a greater sense of community engagement. We will examine ways to increase engagement by upholding high expectations, helping students believe they can meet those expectations, and communicating the value of course material. This workshop is at the introductory level, which means that it assumes no prior knowledge.


This workshop is part of the Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies series for GW instructors seeking strategies to increase student engagement and communicate with learners in new ways. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
