Pittsburgh’s Universities Go to Summer School

Educators from nine Pittsburgh universities came together this summer with one shared goal: to improve education.

Carnegie Mellon University’s Simon Initiative collaborated with the Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education (PCHE) to hold the first-of-its-kind PCHE Simon Summer School to support educators in incorporating Simon technologies and approach into their instruction at their home institutions.

According to Norman Bier, executive director of the Simon Initiative and director of CMU’s Open Learning Initiative, a focus on evidence is one of the key features that distinguishes the Simon approach from other, more intuition-based approaches to instruction. This evidence-based approach supports a careful integration of technology and uses data to continuously refine and improve instruction, leading to better student learning while supporting new discoveries in the learning sciences.
