WCET's 28th Annual Meeting
Adapting to Adaptive Learning: Transforming a Lecture Class Into a Personalized Learning Experience

Moderator: , WCET Adaptive Learning Fellow, WCET, University of Memphis
Speaker: , Instructional Design and Training Specialist, University of Mississippi


Choosing a teaching method is as important as choosing course content. Many of us in higher education ‘choose’ to lecture because our classes are booked in auditoriums and lecture is what we know best from our own college years. Just as moving from F2F to online teaching requires a paradigm shift in how we think about teaching and learning, transitioning from lecturing to adaptive learning can be both pedagogically and technologically challenging. In this presentation, Patricia O’Sullivan will discuss her experience transforming her pharmacy ethics course from a large lecture with little student engagement to small group discussions using Realizeit adaptive courseware.
