Engaging/Engaged Students: Identities, Interconnectedness and the iGeneration

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

For those in the academy who take student success seriously, it has become a truism that student engagement is imperative, but what exactly does that mean? This paper is an exploration into the meaning of student engagement by bringing together pedagogical research on active learning, service learning and the millennial generation with political science literature on globalization and liberal cosmopolitanism. The principal argument of the paper is that civic engagement is intricately linked to student engagement, and that the development of responsible national and global citizens begins in the classroom, extends to government, business and community partnerships, and necessitates institutional commitment. The paper tackles the meaning of identity politics in and out of the classroom, the impact of interconnectedness and changing demographic realities on faculty-student relations, and the inability of the iGeneration to relate to the “sage on the stage.” In the final analysis, if it is the collective professional responsibility of political scientists to teach civic education/engagement, then there are good grounds to argue that knowing how to engage students is crucial.
