Customizing the Learning Experience with an Adaptive Learning Strategy
At Union County College, an adaptive learning strategy is helping next fall’s entering students prepare for success in their future college-credit bearing math courses. By taking a non-credit program over the summer, they can get up to speed for college-level math, potentially avoiding developmental ed courses when they enter college in the fall. It’s like a bridge program, but UCC faculty and instructional designers are finding the offering–based on adaptive learning–more engaging and effective. CT asked UCC’s Director of Student Assessment about the new strategy.
