Don’t wait for the future: learning disruption is already here - GISELLE BYRNES, NBR

Adaptive online learning tools can, through the use of data analytics, help students when they hit a roadblock and give them just-in-time advice. Far from making the role of the teacher redundant, adaptive online learning also allows teachers to see exactly how and where their advice is needed. Universities are re-thinking their priorities around investing in traditional assets and looking to further develop digital learning spaces. They are also increasingly employing data analytics to help improve student engagement and learning outcomes. This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of change, not just for university teachers and administrators, but also for the way in which these institutions are structured, the people they employ and how they will position themselves in the future.
