Keynote Address: Terms of Engagement - Surviving and Thriving in Today's Challenging Academic Context 
Dr. Elizabeth F. Barkley

Dr. Elizabeth

Teaching today is tough, but many of the problems we face would be solved if students were truly engaged in learning. In this keynote, I describe a 5-element model for understanding student engagement and use this as the framework for identifying strategies for increasing it. I then flip the lens and use the same framework to look at how we can keep ourselves engaged in teaching despite the panoply of often competing pressures we face.
