The term “student engagement” has often been misunderstood or underestimated in its impact on the overall well-being of learners.

However, this needs to be reevaluated. 

Student engagement can have a transformative impact on student experience as it significantly influences mental health and academic success.

In this blog post, we will explore the relationship between student engagement and mental well-being.


Understanding Student Engagement

Student engagement goes beyond the classroom experience.

It encompasses a student’s emotional investment, active participation, and sense of belonging within the educational environment.

When students are engaged, they take ownership of their learning journey, actively collaborate with peers, and invest themselves in academic and extracurricular activities.

Engaged students exhibit higher levels of academic performance, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities. But, its impact goes beyond academics; it positively influences mental health and well-being.
