Ask an Expert Live Q & A Panel: Active and Adaptive Learning

Research tells us that a student-centered approach to teaching is more effective at helping students learn and succeed. As a result, higher education is moving away from faculty-centered instruction in favor of student-centered approaches such as active learning, which more effectively engages students in the learning process. Adaptive learning technologies can help support faculty in addressing the unique needs of students, while offering more active and engaging learning experiences. Bring your questions to this live Q&A session with our expert panel as we explore how active and adaptive learning strategies can engage students in blended and online environments, resulting in improved student outcomes and success.

Presenters: Megan Tesene, Director of the Personalized Learning Consortium at the APLU; Susan Adams, Associate Director of Teaching and Learning at Achieving the Dream; Peter van Leusen, Director of Learning Experiences and Student Success in EdPlus at Arizona State University
