Creating a Personal Learning Experience

Learn how Dr. James Speer created a personal learning experience for his large class

In a class of nearly 180, Dr. James Speer implemented Packback to create a personal learning experience for students to engage with the course material outside of class. In addition to building a community among peers, Dr. Speer has also found Packback to be a magnificent tool in getting students to think about the content at a deeper level.

“I’ve really appreciated [Packback] as a platform to get the students to think critically, to think a little bit more deeply about what we’re talking about in class and using that information in their questions,” says Dr. Speer.

“I use Packback in this large class that’s about 180 students, and it allows me to get the students discussing outside of class and make it a more personal experience for them. I found out the students started to develop more engaging questions, deeper questions, from their experience using Packback. So I’ve really appreciated this as a platform to get the students to think critically, to think a little bit more deeply about what we’re talking about in class and using that information in their questions. And asking better questions overall.”
