Creating a Successful Learning Culture: Connecting Learners, Communities, and Information
At the 2007 EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative Annual Meeting, “Creating a Successful Learning Culture: Connecting Learners, Communities, and Information,” we explored our fundamental assumptions about what, where, and how we educate. We focussed on the ways institutions can enhance student learning, going beyond specific examples of innovation to the processes and practices that enable systemic progress toward more effective learning.
Many sessions dealt with the ways in which information technology has changed learner habits and expectations. Connecting and collaborating are key trends in today’s information-rich environment, both for learners as well as for faculty and IT professionals. Research and practice point to the importance of learner involvement, active learning, and ongoing assessment and evaluation as components of a successful learning culture.
