Engaging students to enhance campus-based education

The strategic significance of student engagement lies in its capacity to enhance the quality of university education. This chapter channels ideas set forward throughout the book into three broad takes on how this might be done. First, it considers how faculty, administrators and students can maximise the educational value of online learning management systems. Second, it focuses on how institutions can work to enhance students’ engagement in institutional learning processes. Third, it advances twenty-three opportunities for institutions to engage students in their learning. Many of these ideas are not radical or even new. Their significance is derived, rather, from their engagement-centred perspective on higher education.
