Inside Higher Ed – Student engagement is considered the key to a good education. The more students are involved in their own education and motivated to pick up job-appropriate skills the less likely they are to drop out of college for academic reasons. Some education reforms, however – largely being considered as cost-cutting measures – may work to limit or reduce student involvement and collaboration. Among these are online classes, professor staff cuts, graduate assistants teaching more classes, and less emphasis on critical thinking and research.
