Course Design for Student Engagement

CPD Workshop: Course design for student engagement – What we can learn from motivational theories

When designing a course we are not only deciding on the content, we are also taking decision on how we want to organise the course. Motivational theories entail many indications on how to organise a course in order to foster student engagement. What are those theories and their suggestions for practice and how do we apply those in our courses?  This session is all about digging deeper into theories for student engagement and sharing best practices.

This activity will be offered online (via Zoom) on the 7th of October 2021 from 10.30-12.30 CET and you can sign up below.
