Abstract

Facilitating student engagement and motivation is particularly difficult within compulsory foundation units. This pilot study was undertaken in a first year calculus-level physics unit with a significant failure rate thought to relate to a lack of engagement. The study explored a possible solution: namely, encouraging students to take ownership of their learning by challenging them to explore its relevance to self and career.
