Abstract of seminar

On the basis of two studies undertaken with 400 French undergraduate students, the presentation will examine the relationships between student engagement and course experience. Both concepts can be broken down into different components. Course experience has a significant impact on student engagement, but some components are more influential than others. Similarly, these are only specific components of student engagement that have a significant impact on study success. These results will first be discussed and then rethought on a more general perspective on teaching quality.
