"Immersive learning" refers to the objective of inducing students in a course to remain engaged with course topics and activities day in and day out throughout the term. The alternative to immersive learning is a situation in which students prepare for a class meeting in the hour or two before class, and then turn to other activities as soon as the class is dismissed. In this essay, I describe three techniques I have used to support immersive learning: (1) many small-scale, lightly graded activities, (2) out-ofclass collaborative learning activities, and (3) continuous online learning conversations.
