Presentation at Open Polytechnic 2013 Learning Conference : Engaging Learners.
The term 'engage' has a broad semantic range, from 'to attract and hold fast' (engaging someone’s interest) right through to 'enter into conflict' (engaging in battle). This presentation considers just how the term 'engage' might relate to education, and suggests some ways in which distance educators might engage their students in meaningful ways.
