The Meaning of Student Engagement and Disengagement in the Classroom Context

Despite the popularity of student engagement and, by association, student
disengagement, the academic literature is unclear about the meaning of
these terms. This review extends existing conceptual studies of student
engagement by offering clear defnitions and conceptualisations of both
student engagement and disengagement in the classroom context.
To develop these conceptualisations, the present review draws upon
organisational behaviour theory on work engagement and disengagement
because the literature in this discipline is notably more refined than in
educational research. Click here to read the published article and here for the pre-print full-text.
