Current approaches to scaling effective pedagogies are too often based on anecdotal evidence, when one success story is amplified with the assumption that it can be simply applied in other learning contexts. Compounding this challenge is the notion that scaling is not synonymous with mere duplication: identifying ways to adapt teaching and learning practices for different learners, course levels, program types, and institutional settings requires analysis of data-driven evidence followed by deep thinking around making appropriate modifications for other courses. Join us to hear from two institutional exemplars who are building strategies that scale evidence-based methods, and then work with peers to develop solutions of your own.
