Engaging Learners Online and On-Ground

What does engagement look like across learning spaces? How do we measure and sustain engagement in traditional face-to-face language classes as well as online courses? This session explores the concept of “engagement” and offers insight into research-based techniques that engage language learners. The presenter will offer examples from his own teaching.
