Taking Digital Personalized Learning Beyond Pilots: APUS and Bay Path University

January 30, 2018 Allison Mortland

When it comes to exploring new, digitally driven teaching and learning solutions, the challenge for many institutions isn’t dipping their toes in and testing the waters – it’s taking the plunge to expand beyond piloting course-level implementations to fully immersing educators and learners in a new pedagogy for digital personalized learning.

Recently, the e-Literate blog’s Michael Feldstein and Phil Hill, partners in educational technology consulting firm MindWires, interviewed leaders at American Public University System (APUS) and Bay Path University. Their goal: to shed light on how those who’ve been successful with large-scale personalized learning implementations are making it happen.

Two key insights emerged in their discussions:

  • The importance in shifting from course- to program-level planning and evaluation to create a scalable framework
  • The need to place the primary focus not on the technology itself, but on the pedagogical redesign that it facilitates

Watch the video below to hear more about each institution’s individual goals, approach and programs, as well as how they’re measuring success.
