In July 2016, the Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) joined seven other land-grant institutions in the Accelerating Adaptive Learning Courseware at Public Research Universities Grant offered by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU).
Adaptive courseware offers students a personalized learning environment based on learning goals set by the instructor. As the student works in the platform, it adjusts the material based on the student's progress.
Participating faculty will partner with TILT instructional designers to select one of the twenty-one approved grant vendors as well as incorporate active learning into the course.
The grant runs through the end of AY 2019 and requires that 15-20% of the general education enrollments are in courses with an adaptive component.
The grant supports three academic year cohorts through July 2019. We are currently recruiting faculty participants for Years 2 and 3.
Stipends are available for faculty teaching courses:
- With high enrollment numbers
- With high D/F/W rates
- With high potential to add a variety of high impact practices including active learning, flipped classroom techniques or Learning Assistants
- That will incorporate an existing adaptive courseware platform as a regular and integral part of the student workload.
