This is a 20 minute session. This session will take place from 1:45 - 2:05 pm.

Given the modern age of lifelong learning and our need to be continually upskilling and reskilling to keep pace with rapid evolution in the workplace, more and more learners are seeking out educational opportunities to keep up. In this digital age, an increasing number of universities are opting to offer those opportunities online. However, to date, many of these online learning experiences are no more than direct replicas of the residential classroom–digitized textbooks, lectures recorded from the back of the classroom, exams with pages of multiple choice questions. Digital tools and technology allow us to do so much more than this simple translation. The question is, how can we use evidence-based principles of learning science to transcend this replication and achieve truly transformative digital education? Join 2U, Inc. Senior Director of Course Strategy Rachel Koblic to learn how innovative curriculum design and delivery in digital education has not only challenged pedagogical norms, but has also enhanced the student learning experience to ensure digital courses are just as good as–if not better than–their on-campus counterparts.
