High Engagement Learning

I’m in the midst of creating a virtual course on engagement, addressing educational, work and community contexts. I’m making the case that the core principles and practices of facilitating engagement span equally across these contexts. The possibilities of engagement in education contexts are particularly interesting when the premise is that all learning should contribute to real situations in communities. Think: volunteer home building and repair projects, community gardens and kitchens, arts and entertainment events. In each context real learning that addresses real outcomes is possible. This is high engagement learning.
