BOSTON, June 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tyton Partners, the leading education advisory firm exclusively dedicated to the rapidly evolving Global Education Sector, has published the 2023 Time for Class research publication in collaboration with Anthology and Turnitin, with additional research support from Macmillan Learning, Lumina Foundation, Every Learner Everywhere, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The publication details the differences between student and institutional stakeholder experiences with digital learning in higher education and how institutions and solution providers can address these differences to produce better outcomes for students.
The data is gathered from three large-scale surveys conducted in Spring 2023, collecting insights from 2,048 students, 1,748 instructors, and 306 administrators. Respondents are representative of the diverse demographics of these populations and provide insight into the evolving – and at times at odds – perspectives of today’s learners, instructors, and university leaders. Students shared that while they prefer digital modalities for learning, they face access challenges with regards to reliable internet and devices and that their experiences and preferences differ from institutional stakeholder perceptions. Additionally, instructors shared insight regarding instructional challenges they see implementing digital learning in their classrooms, notably with the innovation in generative AI technology (e.g., ChatGPT) making “detecting student cheating” their most frequently cited in-course challenge. Some of the major differences between the perspectives of students and instructors include:
“We have long seen that digital learning, implemented well, can provide greater access to learner data for educators, support improved learning for students and be a key tool to address equity gaps. Generative AI is affording new ways for educators to change how they spend their time, deepen student learning through new forms of assessment and instruction, and to enable real-time support and intervention at the point of need,” says Kristen Fox, Managing Director at Tyton Partners.
The 2023 Time for Class report of the largest and longest running study monitoring digital learning in higher education is now available, with additional reports, Driving Towards a Degree 2023 and Listening to Learners 2023 being released later this Summer.
