Abstract: This paper attempts to make sense of engaged learning. Approaches such as problem-based learning should be advocated because it is an authentic form of learning encouraging students to be self-regulated and thus metacognitive towards their own thinking and behaviours. In contrast to passive forms of instruction, where learners are not perceived to be active and engaged or reflective, we are highlighting alternative pedagogies that promote this sense of self-regulatoy actions. We describe the engaged learning framework - focusing on both problem and process - which would be necessary for authenticity in learning experiences.
