The NSF DMTL-2019 workshop will convene researchers, educators, and practitioners to advance transformative pedagogical approaches for technology-enhanced team learning within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines. The workshop will advance the utilization and efficacy of next-generation learning architectures through a focus on instructional technologies that facilitate digitally-mediated team-based learning. Interdisciplinary science and engineering researchers, developers, and educators will identify near-term and future research directions to facilitate adaptable digital environments for highly-effective, rewarding, and scalable team-based learning. An emphasis of the workshop includes the personalization of collaborations among diverse learners by automating the identification and utilization of learners’ efficacies and knowledge gaps to create complementary collaborative teams that maximize avenues for peer teaching and learning. The workshop advances both national and societal goals of improving STEM instruction to develop a stronger national STEM workforce, while uniting experts in Data Analytics, Data Mining, and Instructional Design & Technology. Dissemination of the findings from the workshop will include social, traditional, and popular media outlets, and the outcomes of the workshop will benefit researchers, educators, and practitioners from multiple disciplines, while informing digitally-enhanced learner-centered approaches to learning.
