With support from the Office from Provost, the University Teaching and Learning Commons (UTLC) welcomes Dr. Karen Vignare to UNCG on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. Dr. Vignare will give an open talk on the foundations of adaptive learning, 1:30 – 3:00 PM, in SOEB, room 204. To sign up for the event, please click here. For additional information about this event, please contact Dr. Laura Pipe (lmpipe@uncg.edu), Associate Director in the UTLC.

As Executive Director for the Personalized Learning Consortium at the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), Dr. Vignare manages a network of universities committed to student success through personalization. She also oversees APLU’s Adaptive Courseware Grant, program providing leadership and support to eight pioneering universities that are scaling adaptive courseware in introductory-level courses.

In addition to her open talk, Dr. Vignare will be on campus to meet with departments and faculty to help them consider how they might implement adaptive learning in their courses. Adaptive learning software ‘learns’ from student interactions and then adjusts the path and pace of learning, giving faculty an ability to assess and adjust content and assessments to each student’s learning process. Adaptive learning software offers faculty a diagnostic tool for learning comprehension in a variety of subjects and disciplines. You can find out more about adaptive learning from Educause.

Prior to her current role, Dr. Vignare served as Vice Provost at the University of Maryland – University College and as the Director of Project Planning and Implementation for MSUGlobal at Michigan State University. You can find more on Dr. Vignare here.
