A look at the rise of adaptive technology and the end of traditional textbooks during the 2015 TCCTA convention
February 19-21, 2015, McGraw-Hill will join hundreds of community college educators in Dallas at the 68th convention of the Texas Community College Teachers Association (TCCTA). One of the largest annual gatherings of community college instructors and administrators in the United States, this year's TCCTA theme is Lives On The Boundaries: Honoring Our Students, with a keynote provided by Tricia Berry of the University of Texas Austin.
At 4PM CST on 2/20, our Ulrik Christensen, our Senior Fellow of Digital Learning and Doug Hughes, SVP of Sales for Higher Education, will host a technology seminar entitled Adaptive Learning & The Death Of The Textbook: How Learning Science Can Improve Student Performance. The session will explore how adaptive and personalized technology can help students become more efficient and productive, improve retention, and get better grades. Participants will also learn how findings from the science of learning can be applied in both technology and teaching practices to further accelerate student achievement.
