Smooth Sailing for the Student Experience
By creating environments that allow students to make their own choices about how, where, and when to learn—as well as which technology tools to use—higher education institutions will not only streamline the student experience but also increase student success.
The student experience is enhanced when students have both agency in their learning environment and access to the technology support they want and need, and this is especially true for students with disabilities.
Meeting students’ desire for flexibility is a key factor in teaching modality preferences of faculty, who also are most interested in developing their skills to increase belonging and accessibility for students.
Students are incorporating generative AI and other technology tools into their learning as a way to increase efficiency, save time on everyday tasks, and transition more seamlessly into the workplace.
