Can We Change the Game and Move from Adaptive to Adaptable Learning?

The growing use of adaptive learning technology has led to significant questions about “walled garden” courseware, data-informed multiple learning paths, and what is needed to create a more integrated, extensible, and adaptable ecosystem.
 
Moving from adaptive to adaptable learning presents greater flexibility to better support institutional, departmental, and faculty goals to improve educational outcomes. An adaptable system could be reconfigured easily by faculty and instructional designers as they experiment and learn what works for students. This has a direct impact on student success and retention. 
 
This session will explore what is needed to establish an adaptable learning ecosystem, capable of sharing learning objectives, analytics, and outcomes tied to a specific learning objective (or lesson) supported by multiple instructional resources and assessment activities.

Sustaining Ed Tech’s Future: Skills for the New Economy

The pathways for traversing the education to workforce ecosystem are becoming more complex. A constant throughout this is the need for clear, strong, and valid signals of the skills desired by educators and employers and those skills attained by students and employees. Which skills are needed now? In 5 years? Which are evolving and will undergo the most change? During this session, experts will discuss how the ecosystem can better organize itself around our evolving understanding of these skills, as well as our need to develop the capabilities to signal them.
