|Title:||Using Technology to Support Postsecondary Student Learning|
|Description:||Using Technology to Support Postsecondary Student Learning is a practice guide that focuses on promising uses of technologies associated with improving postsecondary student learning outcomes. The practice guide will help higher education instructors, instructional designers, and administrators support learning through the effective use of technology.
Compiled by a panel of national experts and practitioners, the practice guide offers five evidence-based recommendations:
* Use communication and collaboration tools to increase interaction among students and between students and instructors.
* Use varied, personalized, and readily available digital resources to design and deliver instructional content.
* Incorporate technology that models and fosters self-regulated learning strategies.
* Use technology to provide timely and targeted feedback on student performance.
* Use simulation technologies that help students engage in complex problem-solving.
Each recommendation includes research-based strategies and examples for implementing these recommendations in postsecondary settings. Examples include sample tools for increasing communication and collaboration; strategies for varying course formats and packaging course content; technologies to foster self-regulated learning or provide feedback to students; and implementation examples from studies that provide the evidence base for the recommendations.
