Knowledge Factory CEC71
Driving Student Engagement by Replacing the LMS - An Aula Case Study
Date Friday, Dec 7 Time – Room Knight
This Knowledge Factory looks, firstly, at the constraints that current student and educator-facing digital tools - primarily the LMS and emails - impose on student engagement and community. Secondly, it looks at case studies of universities using Aula to replace the Learning Management System to improve engagement. On the way, we'll discuss lessons learned from analysis of 100s of university strategies, from the field of pedagogy, from research on LMSs across the years, and from the usage of modern communication platforms such as Slack, WeChat, and Whatsapp. Expect to leave the session with an understanding of just how much room for innovation has opened up with recent technologies when it comes to core digital infrastructure at universities and the exciting possibilities for strengthening active learning communities in higher education.
I work as an Engagement Partner at Aula, a communications platform that puts conversations at the forefront of education to help educators and students create more active learning experiences and a real sense of community in digital space.
I have always been passionate about all the learning that is possible in education outside of classrooms, and believe Aula facilitates such opportunities because we do not compromise on our "engagement is everything" mindset.
Previously I spent 2 years at McKinsey in New York where I focused on fast-tracking holistic business turnarounds, with a focus on digital, across a variety of industries and geographies (North America, Europe and Asia).
I received an Economics undergraduate degree from Yale University.
