What is Precision Education?

National University commits to create a fully integrated, comprehensive educational environment by utilizing advanced technologies, effective communication tools and interactive teaching methodologies that guide and orchestrate the allocation of resources according to the unique needs of individual students.

The Precision Education Initiative at National University is a university-wide initiative that is creating a new paradigm for student success by exploring ways to leverage technology, data, and communications to create a truly customized learning experience for all students.

Every student deserves a tailored educational support system. By identifying the precise measurement of their current proficiency and status, and subsequent areas of improvement, students can be better positioned to stay on track and accomplish their specific academic goals.

Precision Education Objectives
This evolving initiative is based on a nationwide need to ensure academic success for students of all backgrounds. By combining technology with personalized learning, National University will identify new educational models to ensure college success and completion, which are crucial elements for the country to maintain a position of global leadership in the information age.

The university-wide process starts with its most valued resources–the university community. Faculty are contributing in various ways in defining and refining approaches to Precision Education in this design-build process. As the initiative progresses, the university will integrate many internal projects and external partnerships to advance Precision Education solutions.

As such, the initiative is not one solution, but many combined solutions. Areas to be further developed as research-based projects will include:

  • Adaptive, machine learning instruction
  • Competency-based learning
  • Micro badges & micro-credentialing
  • Online career and academic goal setting
  • Individualized course navigation

The future of higher education will be explored through Precision Education at National University for a truly customizable student experience that creates a seamless pathway to graduation through “High Tech. High Touch. High Choice.”
