Getting—and holding—students’ attention is the first step in supporting their learning. That has long been a challenge, but the pandemic introduced new hurdles. Masks, distancing and virtual or hybrid classrooms have created physical barriers. And many students find it harder to summon the motivation to learn in the face of widespread uncertainty and stress.

How can professors overcome these obstacles, capture students’ interest and maintain their focus?
Join Beth McMurtrie and Beckie Supiano, Chronicle senior writers and authors of our free Teaching newsletter, on February 25 at 1:00-2:00 PM CT for the second installment of Talking About Teaching. This monthly series of roundtable discussions will tackle the topics that concern you most — and answer your questions. Plus, the conversation will continue in the Teaching newsletter.

Register for the second session on how to foster motivation and engagement in your class to:
  • Get ideas for making class time feel meaningful for you and your students
  • Consider common challenges to students’ motivation, and what you can do to help
  • Discover how to incorporate more active learning into your class, whether in person or online
  • Connect with other instructors who face similar challenges
