Rochester, NY – October 1, 2012 – Dr. John Boersma, founder and CEO of Adapt Courseware, the provider of comprehensive online curriculum resources that personalize learning, will be leading an interactive session at the upcoming 2012 Sloan Consortium International Conference on Online Learning. A former university faculty member, Dr. Boersma will discuss his vision for the best online learning experience and show educators how they can dynamically deliver content in a manner that meets the digital literacy and expectations of their students.
“Colleges and universities are serving an increasing number of students who have grown up with technology as an integral part of their lives,” said Dr. Boersma. “The static text, repurposed text book pages, and talking-head videos found in many of today’s online courses are not sufficiently engaging to help students master the material. So much more is possible. By merging online learning theories with hands-on digital interactives, institutions can deliver a truly productive, individualized, and fun learning experience.”
As a seasoned physics instructor, Dr. Boersma brings a pragmatic understanding of how students learn today, how they want to learn, and how they can more effectively learn. Under Dr. Boersma’s guidance, the Adapt Courseware team has conducted research to develop a set of best practices that focus on online learning experiences which can drive measurable learning outcomes.
Adapt Courseware’s innovative approach to adaptive learning combines proven learning science with advanced multimedia design to better engage and motivate each student to obtain competencies that lead to mastery learning. The company’s online curriculum resources direct students to the right learning activity at the right time so they are more likely to actively learn the content.
“What Would the Best Online Learning Experience be Like?” will take place on Thursday, October 11th at 11:25 a.m. The 2012 Sloan-C conference is being held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida from October 10th through 12th.
Sloan-C is an institutional and professional leadership organization dedicated to integrating online education into the mainstream of higher education, helping institutions and individual educators improve the quality, scale, and breadth of online education.
