Highlights From Redefining Student Engagement 2007

Below you will find QuickTime™ video clips of selected presentations from the symposium.  These clips were chosen not because they reflected the views of CUS (they don't, necessarily), but because they are representative of the thought-provoking discussions that took place over the two days.  The clips have been organized according to the six domains of student engagement discussed in Towards a Multidimensional Framework...
