The Adaptive Learning Market Acceleration Program Grant Opportunity
A new report from Education Growth Advisors, Learning to Adapt: The Case for Accelerating Adaptive Learning in Higher Education commissioned by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and a group of innovative higher education institutions, paints a fascinating picture of adaptive learning’s potential in higher education. This report demonstrates that while adaptive learning applications and technologies utilize creative and research driven approaches, many of these solutions are not being widely adopted and are viewed as not quite ready for prime time.
To help move things along, the foundation is soliciting proposals from accredited U.S. colleges and universities for 10 $100,000 grants to help them create the partnerships necessary to launch adaptive courses over the next 24 months. The Adaptive Learning Market Acceleration Program seeks to further accelerate the pace of innovation in the adaptive learning market by showcasing important successes and innovations.
This RFP seeks to cultivate robust partnerships between faculty at U.S. colleges and universities and adaptive learning providers, to deploy innovative adaptive courses on their campuses. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will support each of these implementations with a $100,000 implementation off-set grant and also provide a set of evaluation and communication supports so that as a community, we all benefit from what these innovative implementations achieve and learn. Applications for this RFP are due no later than 3PM Pacific, Tuesday April 30, 2013. Details of how to respond to the RFP and other important instructions can be found here.
