Timothy McKay, PhD (Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Physics, Astronomy and Education at the University of Michigan) will discuss the impact of the information revolution of the 21st century, and how we can harness information technology to personalize education.

We already gather rich and extensive information about each student’s background, interests, goals, activity and current status. Technology-supported personalization will enable us to act on this knowledge: to optimize our education of an increasingly diverse student body, create much greater student motivation and engagement, and accomplish more with less.

Reception to follow.
