Brief summary:

In this fast-paced and interactive webinar Bethany Cagnol will provide learner engagement resources and activities that you can use throughout the academic year. Bethany will start by quickly defining the term engagement (S. Mercer and Z Dörnyei, 2020) and then share the authors’ engagement checklist. From this foundation, she’ll share a collection of entertaining classroom activities that she designed and piloted on her own engineering students in France that she would love to share with the webinar participants.
