Research indicates that active learning models yield greater gains in learner outcomes because they help students become more engaged in and accountable for their learning. Pearson has released the report, Active Learning: Implementation Strategies for High Impact, which details the results following the implementation of four different models of learning: emporium/lab-based, blended/hybrid, flipped-classroom, and fully online. The report also provides compelling, data-supported research across a variety of disciplines.
Eastern Gateway Community College, one of the colleges featured as a case study in the report, serves approximately 2,500 students a year from its main campus in Steubenville, Ohio. The college has an open-door admissions policy and offers placement tests for newly enrolled students. The institution redesigned a number of high-demand, high enrollment business management courses by using CourseConnect, in order to serve a large student population, offering uniformly high-quality courses in a variety of formats. Specifically, the solution enabled the delivery of a consistent curriculum and common assessments across seven courses and formats with 10 instructors, 424 students, and 23 sections. With the CourseConnect suite of comprehensive online courses, instructors are able to personalize their lectures, knowing that students acquire a solid conceptual foundation from the lesson presentations.
Ken Knox, Assistant Professor and Program Director, Eastern Gateway Community College said, “Pearson’s experience has shown that the way educators integrate a learning technology is the single, most significant element that affects resultant outcomes.”
John Tweeddale, Pearson’s Senior Vice President of Efficacy and Quality, said, “Pearson partners with educators who are dedicated to improving learner outcomes and to using Pearson learning technologies to create more active, engaged and successful student learning experiences.”
