Encourage students to develop a deep approach to learning.
Research show that students who approach learning in a “deep” way get more out of their educational experience. By providing meaningful assessments, offering appropriate choices, and showing enthusiasm for your subject, you can help students become deep learners.
Perhaps simply addressing boredom in your class may be one of the most important things to do in order to promote student engagement.
Though addressing the fact that some students may be bored in your class may feel uncomfortable, doing so can greatly assist them to take more responsibility for their learning. Research suggests that instructors who teach students how to see value and relevance in what they are being taught are able to maximize the students’ learning potential.
