As instructors and instructional professionals, our main focus is often on the material that needs to be covered, and we also frequently consult with secondary sources such as our colleagues and scholarship on pedagogy. Outside of our own classrooms, we do not have many opportunities to hear directly from students. During this session, students from different institutions will discuss their experiences with adaptive courseware and other learning technologies, and how these have affected their learning in different courses. This student reflections session will explore these questions and share what is being revealed in designing a course using adaptive learning courseware, including what’s working and what’s not, to inform emerging best practices.
