Within APLU, the Office of Digital Transformation for Digital Success works with institutions to leverage educational technology tools and data as critical tools for improving teaching and learning. We use collaborative projects as an opportunity to connect with key teaching and learning stakeholders (including administrators, instructional designers, centers for teaching and learning, department chairs, deans, and instructors) to center the student experience and use evidence-based practices to improve success outcomes for marginalized students including racially minoritized students, poverty-impacted students, first-generation students, transfer students, and adult learners.
Every Learner Everywhere
Every Learner Everywhere is a network of partner organizations with expertise in evaluating, implementing, scaling, and measuring the efficacy of education technologies, curriculum and course design strategies, teaching practices, and support services that personalize instruction for students in blended and online learning environments. The network’s mission is to help institutions use new technology to innovate teaching and learning, with the ultimate goal of improving outcomes and opportunities for Black, Latino/Latina, and Indigenous students, poverty-affected students, and first-generation students.
APLU is a lead partner and technical service provider within the Every Learner Everywhere network, and many of APLU’s Equitable Digital Learning projects have been supported by the generous funding and partnership of the Every Learner Everywhere network. The partnership started in 2016, when APLU was selected to be a founding partner of the network based on our expertise in adaptive courseware, blended learning, and knowledge of four-year institutions. Every Learner Everywhere began fiscally supporting APLU through grants in 2017 and continuing through the present to work on a variety of initiatives centered on equitable digital learning. In our current partnership, APLU collaborates with the backbone team on network strategy and on planning the trajectory of the network’s activities to best serve the higher education community in the area of equitable digital learning.
