Mistaking Disenchantment for Truth: How Do We Measure Learner Engagement?

Presenter: Tonia Dousay, PhD., Assistant Professor of Learning Sciences, University of Idaho

One of the challenges we face as researchers is making sure that there are methods to our madness; i.e., making sure that the methods of inquiry we choose align with the questions we seek to answer. With respect to learner engagement, the first validated instruments began development in the 1970s and commonly used or referenced instruments now number in the dozens. Together, we’ll explore a few of these tools and strategies for selecting the right one for your research inquiry.
