Takeaways from Beyond the Classroom: A Student Perspective on SENCER

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is a student's perspective of SENCER? In this session, we will hear how participation in SENCER activities outside the classroom provides a sense of purpose and context to in-class conceptual learning, leading to increased engagement in classrooms. Interestingly, this increased engagement extends to classrooms which do not employ the SENCER model of learning. This heightened level of classroom engagement yields motivation to pursue further civic engagement activities outside the classroom, closing the loop.
