Keynote Speaker: Dale P. Johnson, Adaptive Program Manager at ASU
Imagine having at your disposal an interactive, electronic textbook that promotes out-of-class learning to better prepare students for the deeper, interactive experiences inside the classroom. That is what Adaptive Learning tools can do: provide rich and engaging content to automatically create individualized pathways for each student. This ensures solid, base-level skills to succeed in your course and the courses they will take later on. Adaptive Learning tools are used to promote content area knowledge, conceptual and procedural learning, critical thinking, self-efficacy and metacognition.
Dale P. Johnson is the adaptive program manager at Arizona State University. He works with faculty, staff, and technology partners to develop and implement adaptive courseware to help improve the student success rate. Those efforts have earned him the 2016 Sally M. Johnstone Award from WCET recognizing thought leadership, excellence in practice, and demonstrated leadership capabilities. In 2018, he was honored by the IMS Global Learning Consortium with an outstanding service award for his leadership of the adaptive courseware community of practice.
Dale has spoken on adaptive courseware at more than 20 conferences in the USA, Korea, Mexico, Russia and Vietnam and led workshops on the subject at numerous universities. He has a bachelor of science in design degree from ASU and a master in public policy degree from Harvard University, a learning path that combined his interests in design, engineering, history, and public policy. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling and building things. He’s traveled to more than 35 countries, lived in Barcelona for a year as a Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar, and built his own solar home in Phoenix.
