Regent Group started its journey as a tutorial college and believes in individualised learning tailored for each student in small class sizes in a warm and caring environment. Tutorial based teaching and is learning methodology was adopted for learning within the Oxford University teaching methodology. Regent Group believes in the “tutorial model”, however, it would also like to embrace change and accept that in the 21st century, a modern approach to learning is enviable and constitutes embarking on a journey of adaptive learning.
Adaptive learning is an educational method which uses technology devices such as laptops and mobile devices as interactive teaching devices, and to orchestrate the allocation of human and mediated resources according to the unique needs of each learner.
Technology devices adapt the presentation of educational material according to students’ learning needs, as indicated by their responses to questions, tasks and experiences. The technology encompasses aspects derived from various fields of study including computer science, education, psychology, and brain science.
Adaptive learning has been partially driven by a realization that tailored learning cannot be achieved on a large-scale using traditional, non-adaptive approaches. Adaptive learning systems endeavour to transform the learner from passive receptor of information, to collaborator in the educational process. Adaptive learning systems’ primary application is in education, but another popular application is within the higher and further education sectors.
