Student motivation and engagement with school during the pandemic (webinar)

The level of participation in the noon-hour webinar on motivation and engagement with school during the pandemic, organized by Réseau réussite Montréal on February 18, is an indication of just how much concern there is about this issue. Nearly 500 people from all sectors logged on to hear our experts answer questions such as:

  • What impact is the pandemic having on students’ motivation and engagement with school?
  • What does the research tell us about motivation and engagement?
  • What are the main ingredients for promoting motivation and engagement?
  • How can you tell an engaged student from an unengaged one? What are the signs to look for?
  • What role do various stakeholders (school staff, parents, peers, community workers) play when it comes to students’ motivation and engagement?
  • What actions can be taken or planned to enhance students’ motivation and engagement as the school year continues?
  • What added value can be gained from schools, families, and the community working together to support young people?
