Student engagement: Past, present, and future

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Student engagement is often considered a challenging term to define since it is a complex construct of several factors. Nevertheless, it refers to the degree of interest, motivation, or curiosity students demonstrate in their learning. This chapter explores how student engagement frameworks have evolved from
a traditional didactic model (educator focused) to a modern co-created collaborative model (student focused) and has missed some key factors. To fill in the identified gaps on student engagement, a framework of learning stewardship is proposed.
