About the workshop 

According to the Glossary of Education Reform, student engagement refers to the degree of attention, curiosity, interest, optimism, and passion that students show when they are learning or being taught, which extends to the level of motivation they have to learn and progress in their education.

Blogs are online didactic platforms that allow teaching and student engagement to occur beyond the four walls of the physical classroom. It provides an avenue through which the physical boarders of teaching and learning can be removed. This workshop will orient participants to Blogging and the many ways it can be used for teaching and engagement beyond the physical classroom.

Topics include:

1.   Teaching and Learning Beyond the Classroom (Online, Distance Education)

2.   Understanding Blogs

3.   Using Blogger for Teaching and Learning Beyond the Classroom
