Thanks to Shahnaz Kanani for this post on creating engagement for a subject:
This post discusses one of the important aspects of teaching and learning: becoming involved, interested, and passionate about a subject matter.
Personally I believe until I don’t help students become interested in the concept covered in a class session, they do not deeply comprehend the concept and the importance of learning about it. That’s one of main reasons that I constantly look for ways to broaden student perspective about learning something new and help them imagine how what they learn today will help them tomorrow. This is one of the best techniques to grab their attention and help them become engaged and involved in learning.
