BioSpine: Accelerating the Adoption of Adaptive Platforms

Tuesday, February 19 | 3:00PM–3:45PM PT | Pacific Ballroom C, Second Floor
Session Type: Featured Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Adaptive platforms are moving beyond the boundaries of individual courses. The development of adaptive programs that incorporate instructional resources from multiple courses will change the approach to digital education over the next decade. ASU has partnered with CogBooks to create an adaptive platform that integrates the content for 15 core and elective courses in an undergraduate biology degree. This system will enable student success by using adaptive technology to deliver the content they need in each course. It will also help instructors determine what students have already learned by tracking their progress through the system.

Outcomes: Learn about current efforts to develop an adaptive biology undergraduate program * Explore outcomes from adaptive courses from 4 subject areas * Illustrate the implementation of adaptive and active learning in blended courses
