In a review of the faculty definitions of engagement, there is an understanding that challenge does not equal engagement, but that engagement is observed when students are eager to learn on their own, participate in discussions inside and out of the classroom, ask questions (including inquiring into nuances of homework and examination problems. Faculty are engaged in their own class when there is interaction between faculty and students, not a one-way discussion or presentation. Our panel will address the issue of engagement from points of view of various stakeholders in this issue, faculty, students, teaching and learning center staff and directors of technology infrastructure. The panel will incorporate the use of the Turning Point response system so that audience menbers can react to specific questions posed during the presentations. Based on the audience response, we will initiate a dialog with the audience during the panel presentation.
