Engaging and Enthusing Students in the Physical and Virtual Classroom

Lesley Ann Gunton, David Hart, Patrick Hutchinson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter introduces the Classroom Engagement Model, a six-part framework which aims to promote student engagement and attendance across a range of classroom settings of varying sizes. The interventions in this chapter range from those which can be implemented almost immediately, and with minimal time investment on the part of the educator, through to those which require more advance planning. Moving from starter activities to set the atmosphere in the classroom and ‘hook’ your audience through to the plenary in which students answer the ‘so what?’ question they all too often have, this is a practical toolkit for all Organisation and Human Resource Management/Development (OHRM/D) educators. We will also consider how the principles of this framework can be transferred to online learning scenarios, and acknowledge how differing learner’s needs can influence the strategies adopted.
