On April 27-28, 2016 from 11:00 – 2:30 p.m., you are invited to join members of the UW-Whitewater community to attend, “Exploring the Next-Generation Digital Learning Environment: Opportunities and Challenges,” a two-day, online focus session, organized by the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) (http://www.educause.edu/eli).
Join your campus colleagues for an important face-to-face dialogue while exchanging ideas with ELI’s national online teaching and learning community on the subject of the Next-Generation Digital Learning Environment:
Here’s a paradox: grousing about the LMS is a favorite sport on most campuses. Yet nobody seems to think they could possibly do without one (or two or three). This successor environment will be enabled by digital technology, driven by a vision of a learner-centered approach to higher education, and will demand a great deal of innovation and creativity to realize it. During this focus session we’ll review some of the discoveries that informed the ideas in the ELI’s NGDLE white paper, and then, together with participants, collaboratively unpack the key components of this next-generation environment including
- accessibility and UDL
- learning analytics, advising, and assessment
- leadership and organizational considerations
By engaging in the focus session program, participants will
- Understand the scope of a next-generation digital learning environment,
- Learn about the teaching and learning community’s consensus on what this environment needs to enable,
- Explore the ways in which the NGDLE framework is relevant to your institutional opportunities and challenges, and
- Learn about current and possible future applications and practices that are consonant with the NGDLE framework.
