Course Description

Engagement is essential for any learning to take place in the classroom. The challenge for all teachers; is how to create the excitement in their classroom that engages all learners to focus, put in their best effort and succeed in mastering the material presented. In this course we will examine the dynamics that make today’s students some of the most challenging to engage, as well as specific techniques and strategies for getting them excited about learning. The ultimate goal of this class is to provide teachers with the skills to create a classroom where all students are excited and engaged in the learning process.


This course consists of 4 modules. Each module has a PowerPoint presentation that you will watch and then complete the accompanying worksheets.

You can choose to have each module sent to you as you complete it, or we can send you all of the modules at the same time.

You will have up to 6 months to complete the class. Credit for the class can’t be granted sooner than one month after registering even if you complete all the modules before that time.

Once you have completed the class, you will receive an email from the University of Massachusetts Global with your student account. It will have a login and password for you to be able to access your grades and request a transcript.
