There is one more important advantage to personalized learning that cannot be underestimated. Educators know that all learners have different abilities and experiences and will respond in unique ways to learning opportunities. An enormous challenge we face in our education system is how to equitably recognize these differences and develop learning approaches that help all learners achieve. Creating tailored learning environments for each learner can increase equity by providing every learner what they need to be successful, regardless of race, ethnicity, first language, culture, socio-economic background, physical and mental abilities, geography, or generation. 'Personalizing the Online Classroom Through Creative Teaching and Learning' highlights the pillar of leadership and organization by focusing on the changes in teaching technologies. This session is centered on promoting active learning, matching student and faculty expectations, and defining the changing landscape of our students as well as faculty and student’s challenges in the online forum.
