Thursday - Angie McAllister on How Academic Networking and Learning Analytics Can Help "Learning How to Learn"

Join me Thursday, September 6th, for a live and interactive FutureofEducation.com webinar with Angie McAllister, the Director of Data Innovation at Apollo Group, where she specializes in building adaptive learning systems for adult learners. Angie is an educator who has served for 21 years in public and private sectors as a teacher, administrator, and instructional designer in the US and abroad. She teaches courses in leadership theory, strategic management, leadership ethics, research methodology, and business communications.

Angie's specializes in the design and development of hyper-personalized learning ecosystems that enhance the educational experience and improve learning outcomes—particularly for more than 400,000 current working adult learners at University of Phoenix. We'll talk about what she is learning from running what they call the "largest academic social network anywhere;" the ethical responsibilities of how and when information is surfaced as a part of "learning analytics;" the need for more wisdom rather than just data; mentorship projects for adult learners; and the connection with "learning how to learn" and students driving their own learning in an era of "hyper-personalization."
