Proposal Title

Measuring Fundamental Processes Critical to Deep Learning in the SoTL

Proposal Abstract

This session will highlight the importance of measuring fundamental processes critical to deep learning in the SoTL based on lessons learned from 1) a large randomized controlled trial supported by the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences, comparing U-Pace instruction to conventional classroom instruction and other types of online instruction, and 2) additional rigorous evaluations of U-Pace instruction conducted with support from EDUCAUSE, Next Generation Learning Challenges. U-Pace, a new model for online instruction, is applicable across discipline and requires only a LMS. Using the U-Pace projects as exemplars, participants will learn how deep learning can be facilitated in online instruction, and why measuring fundamental processes critical to deep learning is essential to the SoTL. Participants will also learn about valuable U-Pace resources freely available to them.
