Fostering Engagement

Fostering Engagement:

When planning an out-of-class event that involves a faculty member, please keep in mind that many faculty are willing to try something once.  If students do not engage or participate, they are less likely to try to do something with students again (even for a new batch of students next year).  How can you encourage participation?

  1. Talk to students about the uniqueness of this opportunity.
  2. Have students sign a contract at the beginning of the semester.  An example is below - What else would you add to this contract?
 I want the best experience in the Business Foundations FIG.  To do this, I promise to:
  • Attend out-of-class functions led by my instructors whenever possible
  • Attend events arranged by my RA whenever possible
  • Collaborate academically with my peers, RA, and instructors to gain the most networking opportunities in my first year at UW.
