A FRAMEWORK for ENGAGING EXPERIENCES

 
 

It all started when…

working through a series of experiences with incoming college students and examining existing theories of student involvement and transition when I realized there were parts of the framework missing.

Leveraging the work of scholars including Astin and Tinto, I expand their research and offer a framework for engagement accounting for the evolving social structure and realities of the modern learner.

Through presentation of this framework to those who construct student experiences, it has become evident that this framework also has a place in employee engagement.

 
 

USING THE FRAMEWORK

The framework, as a tool for moving from events to experiences, has three broad applications: in the development of new experiences, evaluating existing experiences, and in self-reflection. As you explore the framework give thought to how the various components connect with you, your role, and the learning community you are apart of.
