Effective Learners� Engagement for Learning


For effective learning to happen the learners are to be actively engaged in classrooms and laboratories. For effective engagement the learner's interest in the classroom is to be created. For better engagement the teachers' methods need to be inclined towards making teaching learning process more learners centric. The authors have experimented with several teaching learning strategies regularly in their classrooms for active engagement of learners which leads to effective learning. The results of surveys and measurement of learning outcomes indicate that with better learners' engagement the learning is more effective. This implies that better learners' engagement leads to more effective learning.
