National Louis University has received an honor that furthers its growth as a leader in using technology in innovative ways to improve teaching and foster learning.
Next Generation Learning Challenges has named NLU to its list of 10 universities which make up the Breakthrough Models Incubator 2015 Cohort.
The blog said NLU and the other universities would “offer options to substantial segments of underserved students (including working adults, Pell Grant recipients and minorities) to gain degrees in everything ranging from elementary teaching to business from programs that are based on skill acquisition rather than seat time.”
Next Generation Learning Challenges accelerates educational innovation through applied technology to dramatically improve college readiness and completion in the United States. It is an initiative of EDUCAUSE, which is primarily funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
