The Gates grant will support UTA’s Learning Innovation and Networked Knowledge (LINK) lab in its efforts to connect researchers interested in digital learning’s impact on modern education. The grant will coordinate work between UTA and nine other institutions, including Carnegie Mellon, University of Michigan, and Stanford, to close the gap between digital learning research and its impact on instructional practices in higher education. In addition, UTA leaders hope the funding will address digital learning barriers and examine the conditions needed for all learners to succeed. Research topics will include learning analytics, competency-based learning, MOOCs, the growth of higher education globally, and credentialing of digital programs.
