In this episode of Innovations in Education, Mark McCormack, Senior Director of Research and Insights at EDUCAUSE, breaks down the recently released 2023 Students and Technology Report: Flexibility, Choice, and Equity in the Student Experience and what it says about higher ed’s need for new learning modalities. The report draws on data from EDUCAUSE’s 2023 Student Survey, representing 1,951 students from across 10 U.S. institutions. In this conversation, Mark underscores the importance of flexibility and choice in the student experience and their demands for more personalized, adaptable learning environments. Online and hybrid learning modalities have become integral, enabling students to tailor their educational journey to fit their needs. This emphasis on flexibility is not only a response to the challenges posed by the pandemic but a broader recognition of the diverse needs and circumstances of today’s students. Mark also emphasizes that equity is another essential aspect going forward. As higher ed institutions embrace new modalities, it’s imperative to ensure that all students have equal access to these opportunities.
