5 Higher-Ed Innovators Share Challenges, Ideas for the Future of Digital Learning - Charlie Chung, EdSurge

In a Meetup hosted by EdSurge on Aug. 17, more than 100 people gathered to hear speakers present how their organizations are embracing the future of digital learning. Held at NovoEd’s headquarters, five speakers gave their six-minute lightning talks and then led a smaller group discussion with attendees. Researcher Candace Thille of Stanford University, notable for developing the Open Learning Initiative at Carnegie-Mellon University, now at Stanford, emphasized starting with the learner when we consider edtech research and products. Collaborating with her Stanford colleagues, Thille has been looking for ways to take additional learner factors into account, particularly social-psychological components.
