The Positive Impact of Student Engagement on Learning and Retention
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02

  Abstract: Student engagement in the classroom, laboratory, and outside of traditional course settings has a dramatic and real impact on both conceptual and practical understanding of the material in algebra-based physics courses. The small class sizes available at liberal arts institutions create an environment whereby students can have more access to their professors in all areas of the course. The students that are engaged more frequently in the classroom and lab setting have a more profound understanding of the material both conceptually and in application. Students who are engaged outside of the traditional course setting with both their instructors and peers demonstrate the greatest understanding and retention of the course material.
