Learning to Adapt: A Case for Accelerating Adaptive Learning in Higher Education

by: Adam Newman | Papers |Apr 15th, 2013

Adaptive learning is a more personalized, technology-enabled, and data-driven approach to learning that has the potential to deepen student engagement with learning materials, customize students’ pathways through curriculum, and permit instructors to use class time in more focused and productive ways. Adaptive learning aims to make a significant contribution to improving retention, measuring student learning, aiding the achievement of better outcomes, and improving pedagogy.

A Tyton Partners project created in partnership with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Learning to Adapt: A Case for Accelerating Adaptive Learning in Higher Education outlines for college and university administrators and faculty the potential for adaptive learning to help them address the “Iron Triangle” of cost, access, and quality.

This publication provides institutional decision-makers, technology providers, and other higher education stakeholders with tools and frameworks for identifying opportunities for the application of adaptive learning that is appropriate for a range of institutional contexts.
