Available Now


We all want students to be engaged in their learning. This, we know, helps the learning process, and invests students in the work. Engagement starts with an understanding of instructional delivery – the choreography of learning. Ensuring that the learning process has varied methods can bring learners into the content we want them to take ownership of. In this 2 hour virtual workshop, we will explore key levers of instructional delivery that lead to student engagement as well as concrete strategies and examples to assess the impact on engagement.
