Commentary: The Genesis of Student Engagement

  • Gretta Chambers Chancellor Emerita, McGill University
Keywords: student engagement, learning experience, learner attitudes


The premise here is that learning is the focal point of the student condition and therefore, learners are the principal beneficiaries of any educational process. Considerable effort goes into making allowances for the fact that all students do not learn with the same ease or difficulty and that individual learning paths can be very different. My contention here is that the most important piece in the whole education conundrum is the attitude of learners towards the experience itself and that it is on that attitude in particular that their engagement in the process depends.
