Join us for a collaborative discussion of best practices in the use of new technologies that are changing the way students learn MIS. This workshop will explore the possibilities that recent developments in learning science have uncovered. Numerous studies support the claim that today’s students don’t read. Adaptive learning provides a formative assessment approach that engages without intimidation or boredom. It also gives professors the analytics needed to design targeted lectures and quickly identify students at risk of drop, incomplete, withdrawal or failure.
