Learning Science Webinar, Monday, April 9. How is learning science being used to improve digital education tools? How can you be confident a new product improves outcomes? Why does it matter to you as an educator? As education embraces technology, the opportunities to help each instructor and student to achieve more are growing, but so is the hype.

On Monday, April 9th, at 2:00 pm EDT, we will be hosting a short (20-minute), informative seminar revealing how at Macmillan Learning we blend user-centered design with students, learning science, data mining, and impact research to develop a next generation of learning solutions that are more empathetic and effective. We'll share findings that we hope will be of interest to all (higher-education) educators. And, we'll be taking your questions live.
