Introduction to Family Engagement in Education
In this education course, you will learn what family engagement is and why it matters to the success of students and schools. We will explore the research linking family engagement to better educational outcomes and speak directly with researchers, educators, students, and families about promising practices in the field.
Family engagement describes what families do at home and in the community to support their children’s learning and development. It also encompasses the shared partnership and responsibility between home and school.
Such engagement is essential for school improvement. It is also increasingly recognized as an integral element for proficient practice as an educator.
