Student Engagement has been the subject of many discussions in higher education in recent years because most students appear disconnected from learning, regardless of whether the class is face-to-face, hybrid, or asynchronous. Despite faculty efforts to increase engagement, students do not respond, they arrive unprepared, and instructors are frustrated. As a result, poor grades, low participation, and a decline in student retention are the outcomes of student disengagement.
