APLU Adapt 2021: Lighting the Way

Leaders Speak on Starting, Supporting, and Sustaining Best Practices in Digital Learning Transformation

Adaptive learning technologies – when paired with high quality teaching – have the potential to transform the learning experiences of students and faculty alike. Starting, supporting, and scaling the transformative practices that can meaningfully improve student success in the classroom and on one’s campus takes time, resources, and collaborative leadership. In Lighting the Way, we hear from academic leadership from two- and four-year colleges who led the efforts to redesign and improve outcomes in critical gateway courses, leveraging a variety of adaptive learning technologies to support those efforts on their campuses. These leaders share their experiences and advice for approaching, sustaining, and scaling best practices.
