Post-Forum Virtual Tour & Masterclass | Wednesday, 31 March 2021

Virtual Tour
Enhancing The Remote Learning Experience With SP Jain School Of Global Management’s Engaged Learning Online (ELO) Studio
10:00am – 12:00pm
Masterclass A With remote learning looking set to become the new norm in education in the post-pandemic era, the challenge of keeping students engaged outside of classroom settings is rapidly gaining prominence. Research has found that students are 25% more likely to multitask on non-study related activities in online courses, which in turn harms retention – even performing a second cognitive task while studying can reduce recall by 33%. This virtual tour will bring you to immerse yourself to SP Jain School of Global Management and explore its new comprehensive technology initiative – Engaged Learning Online (ELO) which leverage on blended learning strategy to design an engaging and personalized learning experience for students during remote learning environment. You will get hands-on experience in using the ELO platform before you are being guided to visit the classroom virtually.
Masterclass
Creating Personalized Teaching And Learning With Learning Analytics
1:00pm – 3.30pm
Masterclass B One of the biggest challenges among educators is that everyone learns at different paces; as learning gaps between students grow, the learning experience suffers. Personalized learning is crucial to ensure each student gains optimal knowledge retention with the right level of learning at the right time. This virtual masterclass will deep-dive into how to translate data gathered from classes into effective learning outcomes. You will learn how to use analytics to illuminate potential issues, streamline inefficiencies and ensure every student can learn at their own pace.
