A Look into Student Disengagement

Teachers across the nation believe students feel “defeated, exhausted, and overwhelmed.”

The Chronicle invited faculty members to talk about their exposure to student disengagement. Over 100 people responded, expressing concern for the vast number of unengaged students.

Teacher Stephanie Masson from Northwestern State University says “Students seem to have lost their sense of connection with the university and university community, and their sense of purpose in attending.”

COVID has severely limited the amount of interaction that students had in class so much that it’s become an expectation for many to not even try to talk to peers.

Many students waiting for the end of virtual “learning” found themselves severely disappointed when the “normal” that they expected was not found.
