With the massification of higher education, the pursuit of university teaching excellence has become a global concern. Numerous studies report that student learning is still a public concern. This chapter explores whether, after the massification of higher education in Taiwan, efforts to improve instruction have improved student engagement. This study examines the measurement of student engagement, learning-related experiences, performance, and satisfaction, while considering gender, students’ major public or private education, and differences in the year of study. Student engagement has been classified into behavioral, cognitive, and emotional types. The related statistical analyses were used to present the current status and identify key learning issues on the campus. The findings may prove useful in ameliorating problems of student learning in current higher education.
