The COVID-19 pandemic has forced higher education institutions to rethink the current education system. The pandemic has revealed that greater value must be placed on the student’s self-regulated learning experiences rather than instructional practices. DiLab’s Digital Education team, led by Jeffrey Cardinez, is studying this shift using a connectivism-based approach and modeling the emerging education model as Education Value Networks. After comparing both the traditional and emerging models, the team plans to examine and document the benefits of investing in Education Value Networks in the future.
