Release of ASU Case Study on e-Literate TV

Today we are thrilled to release the third case study in our new e-Literate TV series on “personalized learning”. In this series, we examine how that term, which is heavily marketed but poorly defined, is implemented on the ground at a variety of colleges and universities.

We are adding three episodes from Arizona State University (ASU), a school that is frequently in the news. Rather than just talking about the ASU problems, we are talking with the ASU people involved. What problems are they trying to solve? How do students view some of the changes? Are faculty being replaced by technology or are they changing roles? For that matter, how are faculty members involved in designing some of these changes?

You can see all the case studies (either 2 or 3 per case study) at the series link, and you can access individual episodes below.

ASU Case Study: Ambitious Approach to Change in R1 University

ASU Case Study: Rethinking General Education Science for Non-Majors

ASU Case Study: The Changing Role of Faculty and Teaching Assistants

e-Literate TV, owned and run by MindWires Consulting, is funded in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. When we first talked about the series with the Gates Foundation, they agreed to give us the editorial independence to report what we find, whether it is good, bad, or indifferent.

As with the previous series, we are working in collaboration with In the Telling, our partners providing the platform and video production. Their Telling Story platform allows people to choose their level of engagement, from just watching the video to accessing synchronized transcripts and accessing transmedia. We have added content directly to the timeline of each video, bringing up further references, like e-Literate blog posts or relevant scholarly articles, in context. With In The Telling’s help, we are crafting episodes that we hope will be appealing and informative to those faculty, presidents, provosts, and other important college and university stakeholders who are not ed tech junkies.

We will release two more case studies over the next month, and we also have two episodes discussing the common themes we observed on the campuses. We welcome your feedback, either in comments or on Twitter using the hashtag #eLiterateTV.

Enjoy!
