Engaging students – passion-based learning

So I’m on a mission. How to engage the students in both the learning and the assessment. Passion-Based learning and helping students self asses their learning are both phrases I meet. Passion starts with the teacher/professor or does it? Building up network learning communities in real time? Is it possible to be able to teach with passion and be loyal to the curriculum. I think it begins with stepping out of what Will today referred to as the “Comfort Zone of Content.” It begins, it seems to me, when the teacher becomes a learner and replaces the static curriculum documents with inquiry, conversation, knowledge-building, and personal networks. Taken from Konrad Glogowski’s blog about passion-based learning. How about the students? The teachers are looking for student engagement in every class they take. Is it possible? It certainly helps that we have one subject only each day at my school. Then the passion will only have to be found once that day. I’m on a mission and I will not quite until I find the answer. Please leave a comment if you have one to spare! Or look at this university of Sydney Lecturer Julianne Bartels gives some ideas on how to engage students in lectures.
