CRA Releases Latest Research Issue Report


research-issues-reportNew Technology-based Models for Postsecondary Learning: Conceptual Frameworks and Research Agendas

The report details the findings of a National Science Foundation-Sponsored Computing Research Association Workshop held at MIT on January 9-11, 2013.

From the report: “Advances in technology and in knowledge about expertise, learning, and assessment have the potential to reshape the many forms of education and training past matriculation from high school. In the next decade, higher education, military and workplace training, and professional development must all transform to exploit the opportunities of a new era, leveraging emerging technology-based models that can make learning more efficient and possibly improve student support, all at lower cost for a broader range of learners.”

The report is now available as a pdf at https://turing.cra.org/resources/research-issues/.  Slides from the presentation at NSF on April 19, 2013 are also available.
