Adaptive Learning For Law Students
Adaptive learning is a technique for providing students with more personalized learning to provide efficient, effective, and customized learning paths for each individual student. Adaptive learning works at all levels, including the graduate level, and law students may reap the benefits of this new learning mechanism.
Adaptive learning systems utilize a data-driven approach to adjust the path and pace of a student’s studies to deliver personalized learning. Adaptive systems may support changes in the roles of faculty, enable innovative teaching practices, and incorporate a variety of content formats to support students based on their learning needs.
Adaptive learning through training in the digital realm adapts to the student based on his or her performance throughout the course. An adaptive learning course recognizes when a student makes a mistake and requires additional instruction or practice on a specific topic or skill. adaptive learning allows digital training tools to be, as one expert notes, “both boundlessly scalable and learner tailored.”
By “boundlessly scalable,” a digital course is asynchronous, which means each student may take the class, course, or training on their own time and at their own pace. This would allow anyone to participate without the restrictions of finding common availability in schedules and the physical space to accommodate.
By “learner tailored,” adaptive learning tailors the learning experience to the student by learning their “pain points” (problem areas) through their individual performance and modifying and offering further instruction or practice to address these identified problem areas.
In 2009, Knewton, an online educational platform, launched the first LSAT prep course based on an adaptive learning engine. The program featured live, online video instruction from the country’s brightest and most experienced LSAT experts and access to every question from the 56 previously released LSATs.
