Keeping Students Engaged

This webinar is designed to share best practices for getting and keeping students engaged in the classroom. Too many times, professors find they are asked questions they answered during their lectures. Instead of paying attention, students are often checking social media, daydreaming, or even struggling to stay awake. This webinar demonstrates easy ways to differentiate instruction during class, thereby holding students’ attention and increasing their engagement.

During this webinar, participants learn how to use technology to increase student engagement, flip the classroom from teacher-centric to student-centric, and identify on-the-spot methods for assessing student learning. This information is valuable for increasing student achievement and instructors’ understanding of student comprehension.

Lamar T. Collins, Assistant Principal, Temple High School
Dr. Collins has 18 years of teaching and training experience. He is a Texas certified teacher, is employed as an assistant principal at a large high school, and is charged with helping teachers who struggle with their instructional practices. Dr. Collins has developed curriculum, conducted youth assemblies, and traveled across the country conducting staff development seminars and youth presentations.
