Driving Active Learning through Powerful Analytics

Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2021 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

Collaboration and the exchange of ideas is how new knowledge is created, based on the Socratic method. Yet how do we encourage our students to collaborate, engage, and improve – especially through such turbulent times? This session will focus on using a next-generation discussion board, powered by AI, to generate in-depth discussions between students, empower them with descriptive and prescriptive analytics, and assist the instructors with meaningful automated student assessment. We will touch upon different use-cases and lessons learnt from shifting between face-to-face, remote and hybrid teaching.
