On Tuesday EdSurge, the Online Learning Consortium and Tyton Partners co-hosted the first #DLNchat on Twitter to discuss: “How can digital learning improve outcomes for students?” A few highlights include:
- Marisa Dye, instructional designer at Oklahoma State University, shared that digital learning can help remove the social barriers to learning
- Marilyn Morgan, lecturer at the University of Massachusetts Boston, stressed the importance of aligning incentives to encourage faculty experimentation with digital learning tools
- Dr. Connie Johnson, provost at Colorado Technical University, emphasized the need for greater interoperability between systems
