Educause Seeks Member Input: Next Gen Learning Challenges

Educause announced the following and requests input from its members:

"EDUCAUSE will lead a new effort funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation called the Next Gen Learning Challenges, an effort to identify and scale technology-enabled approaches that dramatically improve college readiness and completion, particularly for low-income young adults. The program will provide grants, build evidence, and develop an active community committed to addressing these persistent educational challenges.

In preparation for the formal grant program we ask you to share your knowledge and to comment on key questions before the program is finalized. EDUCAUSE members are experienced in leveraging all facets of IT to help students achieve the academic success that is crucial to their future. We hope you will share your expertise and perspectives.

The first four challenges NGLC will solicit grant proposals for are:
• Deploying open core courseware
• Deepening learner engagement through interactive, online technologies
• Scaling blended learning
• Mobilizing learning analytics"
