KSU's It’s About Engagement initiative fosters learning through participation in high impact experiences in undergraduate research, internships/co-ops, and service learning. It’s About Engagement is integral to KSU's mission and vision to "offer high-quality and productive undergraduate ... and co-curricular programs" that "empower the members and graduates of the university community to have the vision, ability, and courage to transform the future." In this workshop, we will explore how It’s About Engagement relates to our own contexts by investigating these questions:

What are the goals and objectives of KSU's It’s About Engagement initiative?

How do faculty and students participate in It’s About Engagement?

What are the characteristics of an It’s About Engagement course?

Help your students achieve deep learning through real-world experiential, creative, group oriented work. In this workshop we will uncover some of the theoretical principles behind why experiential learning can be so effective. Dr. David Veazie will present a case study of how he motivates his students to go above and beyond normal expectations for learning by incorporating open-ended, project-based experiential learning with his students, and we will explore together how we can utilize research in the learning sciences to design experiential, group-oriented learning that can unlock creative, deep learning experiences for your students. This event is coordinated so that immediately after the workshop you can enjoy the results of a fun and valuable experiential learning event by attending the KSU Annual First Year Students’ Pumpkin Launch Extravaganza.

Undergraduate research is a high-impact educational practice that leads to deep, meaningful learning for students (Kuh, 2008). This workshop will be focused on how faculty can get started in mentoring undergraduate researchers, how to work with teams of researchers, and how to embed meaningful undergraduate research experiences into your courses. Kennesaw State University will be hosting the largest undergraduate research conference in the country in 2019; let's start now in making our campus the epicenter of transformative undergraduate research experiences.
