Every Learner Everywhere

Teaching with a Cobot, not a Robot

Using Learning Sciences to Reclaim the Humanity in Adaptive and Active Learning

Just like using a kitchen gadget for the first time, it can sometimes be a puzzle to leverage adaptive courseware to enable active learning — especially when learners are at a distance — but understanding the mechanics of learning can help faculty fit the right pieces together in ways that work for all students. This presentation explores four dimensions of motivation and feedback, two learning science pillars that engage students in the learning process and fosters long-term memories. Building awareness of each student’s experience on these dimensions facilitates instructors’ ability to notice and reflect on how the course is working for each student to support iteration in the efforts for equitable instruction.

Speakers:  Dr. Sarojani Mohammed, Founder and Principal of Ed Research Works & Dr. Rachel Schechter, Chief Research Officer for Learning Experience Design, Evaluation, and Consulting at Charles River Media Group

This webinar is the final of four in the virtual faculty workshop: Educational Equity through Digital Learning.
