The Learning Technology Center (LTC) has been supporting instructors in using adaptive and personalized learning platforms as part of a pilot project since 2018. If you are interested in adaptive and personalized learning, please consider joining us this Friday for a discussion that will include experiences of instructors in the current pilot project.
Registration is suggested, but not required. You can register at the following link (please note that you need to sign in with your UWW credentials to register):
Did you know that the Learning Technology Center (LTC) supports instructors in piloting emerging technologies in their courses? These technologies are selected in order to address teaching and learning challenges. Over the past few years, the LTC has supported instructors in exploring technologies including Webex Teams, Poll Everywhere, and adaptive learning platforms Realizeit and Cerego.
If you would like to hear more about the LTC’s emerging technology exploration projects, please sign up here to attend our upcoming information session at 3:00 pm on November 19th, 2019. In addition to providing information on our past and current projects, we will welcome feedback including suggestions for technologies you might like to use in the future.
If you have any questions or feedback relating to emerging technology explorations, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Learning Technology Center (LTC) is currently exploring adaptive learning technologies, focusing on the platform Cerego. If you are potentially interested in incorporating adaptive learning into your course but do not know where or how to get started, consider attending the adaptive learning information session next Monday (10/28/19) so you can learn more about the possibilities offered by adaptive learning.
The information session takes place at 3:30 pm on Monday October 28th, 2019 in McGraw 19A, and runs for about 45 minutes. If you are interested, please sign up here. Please note that you will need to log in with your UW-Whitewater credentials to register for this session.
Adaptive learning platforms offer a way to structure student learning activities and assessments to personalize the learning experience on how a student performs. The adaptive learning platform provides targeted feedback and additional learning material to help foster student learning. Additionally, adaptive learning platforms typically offer instructors analytics to closely monitor student progress and areas that specific students may struggle.
Learning Technology Center staff will be at the UW-Whitewater at Rock County campus (HS0027) on Monday October 21st, 2019 from 12:00 to 12:50 pm to provide an information session on adaptive learning. If you are interested in learning more about adaptive learning, and the current adaptive learning pilot, please join us at this session!
If you have any questions about the information session, or adaptive learning more generally, please feel free to contact email@example.com
Are you interested in using a new tool to facilitate student engagement? “Poll Everywhere” is a live polling tool that allows students to submit answers, in real-time, to closed or open-ended prompts that instructors create. Students can respond using the Poll Everywhere website, the mobile app, or even through text messages.
If you are interested in learning more about using Poll Everywhere in your course, consider registering for the workshop on Monday April 15th, at 10:30 am. You will need to enter your UWW Net-ID and password to register.
Adaptive learning offers a way to structure student learning activities and assessments. In adaptive learning, content and/or assessments continuously adapt based on how a student performs, providing feedback and additional learning material so the student can better understand, and master, the course material.
With Cerego, instructors can create content for students to learn course material through the use of various options including multiple choice and true/false questions, flashcards, fill-in-the-blank passages, and interactive figures. Based on the students’ correct and incorrect responses, the Cerego platform determines what individual students need to study next. If you think you might be interested in using adaptive learning in your course over the next academic year, please consider attending the LTC’s spring adaptive learning information session to find out if adaptive learning using Cerego might be a good fit for you, your students, and your course!
Are you interested in using a new tool to facilitate student engagement in your Spring 2019 course? “Poll Everywhere” is a live polling tool that allows students to submit answers, in real-time, to closed or open-ended prompts that instructors create. Students can respond using the Poll Everywhere website, the mobile app, or even through text messages.
If you are interested in learning more about using Poll Everywhere in your course, consider registering for the workshop on Friday, February 8th, at 8:30 am. You will need to enter your UWW Net-ID and password to register.
There is still some time to learn how to use Poll Everywhere this semester!
Poll Everywhere allows students to submit answers on the Poll Everywhere website, the mobile app, or even through text messages to close or open-ended polls that you create. In the video below, Assistant Professor of Political Science Eric Loepp discusses how he used Poll Everywhere in his course.
