Adaptive learning offers the promise for all learners of differing skill sets and abilities to be successful at their individual pace and level of understanding (ELI 2017, Pugliese 2016). As an institution centered on student success and access, ASU has been implementing adaptive learning in large-enrollment general education courses since 2011. This session summarizes outcomes (student retention, success, and instructor and student feedback) from four subject areas and describes current efforts for developing an adaptive biology program. Takeaways will include a proven implementation model, outcomes and experiences representing multiple perspectives, and a systems view for achieving student success.

Outcomes: Learn about outcomes from adaptive courses from four subject areas * Learn about the implementation of adaptive and active learning in blended courses * Explore current efforts to develop an adaptive biology undergraduate program
