HBCU Regional Institute on Digital Learning Convenes at Clark Atlanta University


Clark Atlanta University (CAU) hosts the first HBCU Regional Institute on Digital Learning on July 15–18. This major regional convening of chief academic officers, faculty, and career pathway initiatives directors from more than 30 HBCUs focuses on using digital and adaptive learning solutions and platforms to improve student learning and success.

The goal of the HBCU Regional Institute on Digital Learning is to accelerate student learning, retention, and degree completion at the selected HBCUs through the redesign of courses and learning experiences. With support from the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and the Association of Chief Academic Officers (ACAO), Clark Atlanta University, as the lead institution, has arranged for national thought leaders and digital learning experts to provide a series of dynamic sessions over the three days of the convening.

Participating HBCU leaders and faculty will also engage in planning sessions that will enable them to apply the new knowledge and understanding of digital and adaptive learning within a structured learning environment in ways that will further advance their students’ success. Adaptive learning is an education technology that can respond to a student's interactions in real-time by automatically providing the student with individual support.
