GSU Awarded OLC’s Digital Learning Innovation Award
The Online Learning Consortium (OLC) awarded GSU’s Political Science faculty-led team the Digital Learning Innovation Award for their work on reshaping the Global Issues course using adaptive learning courseware. Dr. Chris Brown received the award on behalf of the team — Dr. Jeannie Grussendorf, Dr. Brown and Mr. Michael Shea — along with a $10,000 prize supported by the Gates Foundation.
The adaptive course was piloted in the Fall of 2017 on more than 1,200 students across 13 sections, along with a Spring control study, resulting in a strong and statistically significant positive student perceptions of the adaptive courseware as well as in class performance.
