This book provides university teachers, leaders and policymakers
with evidence on how researchers in several countries are
monitoring and improving student engagement-the extent to which
students are exposed to and participate in effective educational
practices. It captures insights from international implementations
of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), developed in
the United States. In the last half decade NSSE has been adapted
and used in several other countries, producing the largest
international collaboration yet involving educationally relevant
data on students' engagement in higher education.
Leaders of established national collaborations draw on their
experiences with hundreds of institutions to contribute their
insights. Framed by their cultural and educational contexts, they
discuss issues concerning first-year learners, international
students, part-time and distance learners, as well as teaching and
leadership in support of student learning. Each chapter outlines
strategies based on national case studies and presents perspectives
supported by concrete examples of how these have played out in
diverse settings. The book suggests mechanisms that can be used by
institutions, ministries and quality agencies around the world.
