Improving learning and reducing costs: New models of online learning

Presenter Carol Twigg, Executive Director of the Center for Academic Transformation at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Abstract Colleges and universities are offering thousands of fully online courses, ostensibly altering centuries-old methods of teaching and learning. Few of these courses, however, make significant improvements in either the cost or quality dimensions of student learning, instead, they frequently replicate face-to-face pedagogies and organizational frameworks. Are you taking advantage of IT's capabilities as you design new learning environments? Using examples drawn primarily from the Program in Course Redesign, this presentation will discuss new models of online learning that improve the quality of student learning and reduce instructional costs.
