Learning to Adapt: How to Cultivate a Culture of Pedagogical Innovation and Promote Equitable Outcomes

Thursday, October 29 | 11:00AM–11:45AM ET
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Live Session

Adaptive learning technologies have the potential to transform the learning experiences of students and faculty alike. Applications of these technologies in higher education have increased 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 including institutional strategy, finance, IT, institutional research, student support, and academic units. Implementation and its associated institutional transformations can take time—anywhere from nine months to three 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, as well as 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, joined by experts and university partners, will guide participants through the various stages of implementation, identify supporting resources and actionable next steps, building a network of colleagues doing similar work at other institutions.
