Adapt Courseware, which develops state-of-the-art personalized learning solutions, has been invited to speak on innovations in adaptive and competency-based learning at both the APSCU Annual Convention and the TAICS Annual Conference. The company will explore opportunities to engage students in new and more productive ways using interactive multimedia and will showcase examples of this approach in action, providing the educational experience today's digital-savvy students expect.
"Evidence-based, adaptive learning is being recognized as a valid means to support more students in more personalized ways, leading to better learning outcomes," said Mark Brodsky, CEO of Adapt Courseware. "Whether as a means to improve completion and retention rates within existing curriculum, or in combination with efforts to transition to a competency-based education model, personalized learning has the power to help more students graduate in a timely manner with the best combination of knowledge and marketable skills, while enabling institutions to effectively measure performance and success."
"We are excited to be chosen among an impressive group of thought leaders presenting at these events, and look forward to collaborating with educators to inspire action from ideas," noted Brodsky.
APSCU selected Adapt Courseware to present "A New Standard in Online Courses: Merging Education, Technology and Entertainment" in its Innovate Track. Featuring an online Physics course jointly developed by Adapt Courseware and The University of Florida, session leaders will show how adaptive multimedia can adjust to each student's needs, presenting relevant information in a way that is easier to digest, remember and apply. The APSCU Convention, which focuses on "Outcomes 2025," takes place June 2nd - 4th in Denver.
Adapt Courseware will also be guiding Tennessee college leaders and faculty through this same session at the TAICS event, in addition to the session, "A Bridge to Competency-Based Education." In this latter presentation, educators will gain insight into the ways in which evidence-based, adaptive learning can help them seamlessly progress to a competency-based model, giving administrators time to understand and plan for emerging standards, while helping faculty and students acclimate to this fundamental shift in the teaching and learning process. TAICS takes place May 28th - 29th in Nashville.
