Every Learner Everywhere & Lighthouse Institutions: First-Year Experiences

The report Every Learner Everywhere & Lighthouse Institutions shares first-year experiences of 2- and 4-year colleges piloting new versions of gateway courses incorporating adaptive learning. During the first phase of the Every Learner Everywhere work, network members Achieving the Dream (ATD) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) worked with two-year colleges and four-year universities, respectively, to develop proof points for the value of the supports the network could provide for effective implementation of adaptive courseware in gateway courses. The plan for this work entailed inviting, convening, and advising faculty and staff teams led by a senior administrator from a dozen lighthouse colleges interested in using adaptive courseware. These lighthouse institutions were recruited from three states (Florida, Ohio, and Texas).
