Webinar: Implementing Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education

Online event

Webinar | Educause

In a contemporary climate of exploding diversity in higher education, the notion of Universal Design for Learning is gaining momentum.  With its focus on design for diversity, it is applauded by students for its ability to shift perspectives and trigger a change in traditional pedagogy and mindset.  At the same time, however, it is often a notion sprung on instructors who do not always fully understand what has made it such an attractive model, how the paradigm is implemented, and what this shift might represent for them in terms of professional development and reflection.  This three part course addresses these preoccupations with a dynamically paced progression through ‘The why?’, ‘The how?’, ‘And now?’

Webinar: Exploring Integrated Learning Systems to Optimize Student-Centered Learning

Online event

Webinar | iNACOL

Schools and districts across the United States are exploring new and powerful ways to redesign education around student-centered, transformative digital learning using competency education as an underpinning. Transforming schools and districts to student-centered learning (SCL) is a complex process. The transformation of educational systems is not scalable or sustainable without a focus on creating systematic and systemic change at both the school and district levels and without the thoughtful use of technology to support the learning and teaching processes, as well as district-level business processes.

This requires current IT ecosystems to be designed around student-centered learning, competency attainment, and multiple pathways. Today, more than ever, school and district leaders are searching for integrated learning ecosystems that support and drive student-centered learning. What are these system requirements and functionalities? What are the interoperability principles that will need to be considered?

Webinar: We Found the Weapons of Mass Instruction: Why the Next Big Thing in Learning Is Micro

Online event

Webinar | eLearning Guild

Microlearning is the most effective way to train people at work. The more accurate answer is that if you don’t learn about microlearning now, you’ll have that much further to catch up later. Because in a noisy and busy world, short bursts of training are the only pieces of content employees—and busy, good-looking L&D professionals—have time for. And that means microlearning is here to stay. It’s the biggest revolution in workplace training today. We want to show you why.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Why microlearning originated out of the failures of traditional training
  • How microlearning transforms not just what you know, but what you do
  • Ways you can create microlearning at your own organization

Webinar: The API-ification of Education...Think Uber, Spotify, and Airbnb... What do these three companies have in common?

Online event

Webinar | Learnosity

Think Uber, Spotify, and Airbnb... 

What do these three companies have in common? Most obviously, they’re all multi-billion dollar companies. They’ve all had tremendous success with their applications, which are now recognized globally. But what else? They are also all exemplary examples of how two or more companies working together can create more value than either of them could on their own. 

This webinar explores the global phenomenon of the API economy; the fundamental premise of which is the increased productivity enabled by packaging commodity, yet often complex, functionality into reusable “building blocks”. We will also discuss how companies can best evaluate whether they should build in-house or leverage the services of others? We're excited to welcome Chris Contini, CEO of OnCourse Systems for Education to the webinar. Chris will be joining to reflect on his build vs buy experience and to discuss what prompted his company’s strategic decision.
