Adapt Courseware Executive to Present at Instructional Technology Council eLearning Conference
Higher Education Attendees from Around the World Gather to Explore New Ways to Make Online Education More Engaging and Effective
Rochester, NY – February 11, 2013 – Adapt Courseware, the provider of comprehensive adaptive online curriculum resources that individualize each student’s learning experience, is presenting at the 2013 eLearning Conference hosted by the Instructional Technology Council (ITC). Hank Bowman, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, will lead a dialogue with frontline college and university eLearning practitioners about delivering more meaningful and motivating online learning experiences that can drive measurable learning outcomes.
“The more we talk with educators about the challenges and limitations of most online courses, the more we agree that online learning can and should be better,” said Bowman. “Adaptive learning strategies afford tremendous opportunities to make online learning more engaging and effective. We are looking forward to some insightful discussions with ITC attendees about their current online offerings, the great potential of online learning, and the types of changes necessary to further improve the way students learn and succeed. After all, students who are highly engaged and successful have a greater chance of completing courses and programs, which can lead to higher retention rates.”

Bowman’s session will review the importance of principles such as effective multimedia, optimal challenge, student choice, mastery learning, and social learning, along with their combined roles in fostering student collaboration, engagement, and productivity.
