Examining the Data: Adaptive Courseware and Student Communication at Work

Session Overview

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

Interaction is the glue that holds the learning environment together. This session examines the powerful student-content interaction afforded by the use of adaptive courseware and the student-instructor interaction strengthened by an outreach communication program.  Colleagues will share disaggregated student outcome data that was used to inform course design and scaling of evidence-based practices and discuss how this effort was initiated and supported at Cuyahoga Community College, an Achieving the Dream Leader College.
