“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” – Aristotle

We have a number of opportunities to connect students with ourselves, our content, each other and external stakeholders. All of these opportunities are chances to engage the cohort in meaningful and deep ways. What types of strategies and techniques exist to drive student engagement inside and outside the classroom? These toolbox resources are a great place to start!

Resources from the Toolbox

See below for resources to assist with engaging

The L&T Toolbox provides practical examples for how teaching staff can further enhance their courses using evidence based approaches and activities. The items in the Toolbox have been separated into six categories; Explaining, Responding, Motivation, Engaging, Supporting and Communicating. Targeting specific areas, these resources are aimed at reinforcing RMIT’s vision for student centred learning and empower you to deliver on this promise.

Created in collaboration with experienced learning designers, media producers and senior learning and teaching stakeholders, this toolkit offers a tailored and targeted series of resources. Adoption of the tips and techniques suggested in these resources will help increase student satisfaction by engaging the cohort with opportunities to connect with their instructors and content in diverse ways.

Whilst being bite-sized, these activities deliver a large impact on the student experience and move us towards ensuring our students remain actively engaged throughout their learning journey.
