Distributed Learning for Undergraduate Programs in Data Science at Diverse Universities (open access)

Distributed Learning for Undergraduate Programs in Data Science at Diverse Universities

Data management plan for the grant, "Distributed Learning for Undergraduate Programs in Data Science at Diverse Universities." Here, we propose to expand on our previous NSF-supported work in developing a suite of courses in data science (DS) that were taught across a network of 4 undergraduate institutions in a distributed learning (DL) format. The current proposal seeks to expand the size and diversity of our network while adapting the advanced distributed learning (ADL) technology of the U.S. military to an academic setting to harness the power of AI in tailoring optimal learning experiences for individual students.

Teaching and Learning with Technology During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Highlighting the Need for Micro-Meso-Macro Alignments (open access)

Teaching and Learning with Technology During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Highlighting the Need for Micro-Meso-Macro Alignments

This article covers the challenges brought about for teachers and learners from transitioning to online education due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The authors reflect on these challenges based on discussions at EDUsummIT2019 in Quebec about the theme “Learners and learning contexts: New alignments for the digital age." Informed by theoretical conceptualization and empirical evidence the authors identify micro-meso-macro alignments that need to be in place to move education into the digital age: alignments for quality learning contexts, alignments in support for teachers, and alignments through partnerships.
