Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Industry and Client-Led Session
The EDUCAUSE paper on the next generation digital learning environment and the IMS/C-BEN work on CBE and credentialing standards outlined a transformational vision for institutions to consider. In this session, we will propose important implementation elements that will enable this transition, including backward design, authentic assessment, learning analytics, and standards-based learner records.

Outcomes: Describe the significance of and be prepared to make infrastructure decisions based on the NGDLE and CBE technology challenges documents published in 2015 * Articulate extensions and necessary building blocks for implementing NGDLE/CBE learning environments at your institutions * Use the framework provided as a starting point for learning technology strategic planning
