The Programmatic Learning Environment Prototype
- Amy McQuigge, Empire State College
Empire State College
We propose the development of a program-based learning environment prototype that provides a clean, clear, holistic approach to earning a degree in an ecosystem in which the courses or learning modules are just one part and well integrated within a more robust space. This new way of thinking about online program delivery would have broad applicability across the university and may move SUNY into the forefront of developing new learning ecosystems. Our goal is to enrich the learning experience adding academic depth, enhancing program cohesion and increasing engagement among the students. Ultimately, we strive to increase retention and completion.
