Improving Small Class Student Engagement University of Phoenix School of Business San Antonio, Texas and Area Campuses

An exploratory study designed to enlighten a broader audience of various practical small classroom educational engagement activities. The research surveyed and investigated both the faculty’s and learner’s perspectives. Additionally, the study reviewed the measures they felt were required to support and develop useful engagement activities. The discoveries may aid educational professionals in delivering an enhanced educational and learning experience. Moreover, the study may provide the learners with improved skills sets to use in the construction of competencies for their future employment. This paper will explore innovative and investigational classroom enterprises to improve and advance small class face-to-face engagement. The information provided a cross-sectional view of the University leadership, faculty, external intellectual insights, and the student viewpoint. Educators and students will be able to use this paper as a launching point to conduct more in-depth empirical research which may advance the literature to bolster the role of faculty and student learning. A prominent engagement factor surfaced during the course of the study. Both the faculty and leadership saw a significance to making course materials relevant. Relevance in this case may involve relating the course material to current event situations to help give a greater insight from the student perspective. Students many times will not share that they do not understand the material. This is an opportunity for the campus leadership and faculty to be proactive and adjust to the individuals learning styles. These strategies include visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning processes.
