prevailing model of instruction in higher education
Prevailing Model of Instruction in Higher Education
  • “Cottage-Industry Course Model” (Mehaffy)
    • Each course is designed, delivered, and assessed by an individual faculty member.
    • If institutions offer an average of four sections of an introductory general education course, approximately 16,000 separate sections of this course will be designed, delivered, and assessed—as if this course had never been taught before.
  • Instructor as originator of course content
  • Lecture as most prevalent mode of delivery
  • Courses have specified number of contact hours
  • Overall student performance assigned final grade
alternative course models
Alternative CourseModels
  • Free online courses (e.g., EdX, MOOCs, Coursera)
  • Low-cost online courses (e.g.,;
  • Pre-packaged digitized course shell and content (
flipped classrooms
Flipped Classrooms
  • Mastery-based, adaptive learning models (e.g., Knewton)
  • Online Learning Initiative
knewton s adaptive learning
Knewton’s Adaptive Learning

Adaptive learning supports mastery-based learning, a school of teaching founded on the idea that student progression through a course should be dependent on proficiency as opposed to the amount of time spent on academic work. Knewton Math Readiness, for example, is designed to present students with personal learning paths as it continually assesses their mathematical proficiency and adapts accordingly. Lessons consist of videos, online textbook selections, and lesson quizzes.
