Ladders, pyramids and student engagement

Chris Clark shares how might we visualize levels of student engagement in a learning activity. “It may not be as simple as a one-dimensional ladder or pyramid; we would probably want to account for multiple factors, such as:

Direction: who is in control, the instructor or the students?

Substance: is it meaningful or contrived?

Realism: are students in the real world, in a simulation, or is there no connection?

Production: are students making/writing/speaking or consuming/listening/watching?”
