Over the past few years, we’ve seen many new approaches in the online dimensions of teaching and learning. Phenomena like the MOOC, learning analytics, and new concepts such as personalized and adaptive learning are generating not only tactical innovations, but also entirely new models for teaching and learning in higher education. Some of these are transformative, with implications for blended and face-to-face learning environments.

During the 2013 ELI Online Fall Focus Session we explored some of these new approaches and models, the evidence that supports them, and how they can be deployed to support all learning:

  • Promotion of personalization, engagement, and efficiency in learning through the development of new instructional delivery models that make creative use of content and resources (e.g., time, instructors and other staff)
  • Use of learner analytics to support quality, affordability, and continuous improvement in instructional programs
  • Tools, such as service blueprinting, that can help us to serve students through our innovations
  • Use of instructional technologies and platforms that support competency-based learning, adaptive learning, and other customized learning approaches
  • Leadership in a rapidly transforming higher education landscape and its impact on teaching and learning
