This discussion group will present most interesting findings of 2013 ECAR Study of Undergraduate Student and Information Technology from four AMICAL member institutions, which reflect students’ answers about their experience and expectations, perceptions of their academic engagement.
After a brief presentation and discussion of our findings, actions/considerations that were taken by each institution based on survey results, we would engage the participants in a discussion panel on their own findings/ experiences.
The final goal of the discussion will be to draw a map of encountered problems of students’ engagement and come up with guidelines for overcoming them. Ideally, a few best practice examples could be taken and later disseminated to the AMICAL consortium.
