Are We Ready for Next Generation Digital Learning Environments?

On Demand
Session Type: Virtual
Delivery Format: On-Demand
The NGDLE is designed to foster iterative improvement, varying across institutions. We asked, What is the current state of digital environments and integration? The session will begin with a brief discussion of findings on IDs, LMSs, and digital tool integration. Next, participants will elaborate on key themes and establish a current state of NGDLEs. We will then engage in a gap-filling protocol bridging current and future states. Research interests will be shared, in service of creating a CoP.

Outcomes: Discuss the findings of a nationwide survey of the instructional designer's role in building digital learning environments * Collaboratively expand on research findings to establish a current state for gap-filling protocol * Brainstorm ideas to bridge the gap between the current and future state of NGDLEs
