Is student engagement solely what we experience in the classroom or online? If not, how do we distinguish students engaged or not when genuine engagement is not readily apparent? We argue that a successful engagement model is multi-faceted, stemming from understanding what motivates students intrinsically and extrinsically; i.e. which cultural compass is in play? As with many journeys, the compass helps us navigate; but first we should identify the right direction for our journey.
