More than Getting Them to Register: Building Successful Foundational Online and Blended Courses Using Adaptive Technologies
Concurrent Session 3 & 4 (combined)
Adaptive learning technologies have the potential to transform the learning experiences of students and faculty alike. Increasing applications of these technologies by faculty and institutions of higher education have helped to grow our collective understanding of how to support transformation through effective implementation. Effective adaptive courseware implementation can have a broad footprint at an institution, touching departments like institutional strategy, finance, IT, institutional research, student support, and academic units. Implementation and its associated institutional transformations can take time—anywhere from 9 months to 3 years—when accounting for the planning, preparation, and use of adaptive courseware. Ensuring that your institution has the necessary resources allocated to support this process, and alignment on a shared goal, are key to success.
Drawing from the experience of a network of institutions with expertise in implementing and supporting adaptive courseware, the Association of Public & Land-grant Universities developed a guide for educational leaders seeking to implement adaptive courseware in their programs or institutions. Joined by the experts and university partners who helped to create that guide, this interactive workshop will guide participants through the various stages of implementation, identify supporting resources and actionable next steps, and build a network of colleagues doing similar work at other institutions.
