The first few weeks of class are over and the newness of the semester has worn off. After the first few weeks, we see some students starting to ‘ghost’ our classes. Ghosting is when someone stops showing up.
Before students ghost our classes, they start to disengage. The article, Preventing Students from Ghosting Your Class by Alicia Pennington in Faculty Focus, outlines why it’s important to know how to identify disengagement, why students become disengaged, and how to intervene before students become ghosts.
