Interested in personalized and adaptive learning?

Are you looking for ways to increase student engagement in your online course? Are you not sure how to best monitor student progress when you don’t see your students in class? Would you like to be able to have resources that more specifically meet the needs of your students, while allowing them to skip things they have already learned? If so, you might be interested in joining the conversation about personalized and adaptive learning on campus! Adaptive learning platforms incorporate analytics with the aim of helping instructors monitor student progress, and use various methods to cultivate individualized pathways to better meet students’ specific needs.

Adaptive learning pathways can function similarly to nodes in a network.

Over the past year, the Learning Technology Center (LTC) has collaborated with instructors around campus to explore adaptive learning. The LTC would like to invite any UW-Whitewater faculty, staff, or student interested in adaptive and personalized learning to our two meetings discussing the state of adaptive learning on campus this fall:

Friday September 27th from 9:30 to 10:15 am in McGraw 19A
Friday October 25th from 9:30 to 10:15 am in McGraw 19A

No registration is necessary! Just stop in and join the discussion!

You can find out more information on adaptive learning from EDUCAUSE’s “7 Things You Should Know About Adaptive Learning.” If you have any questions about these meetings, or adaptive learning, please contact the UW-W Learning Technology Center.
