Jan Willem Grijpma

Small-group learning activities rely on students’ engagement with teachers, study materials and/or each other to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Medical teachers often equate engagement with verbal participation: talking students are engaged and silent students are disengaged. Silence can even have a negative effect on students’ grades and professional behaviour assessments. However, silence can be a sign of engagement, for example when a student is thinking, analyzing, or carefully listening. Therefore, we need to broaden our understanding of engagement, to be able to better distinguish between engagement and disengagement, and use these new insights to engage students.
