After the launch of How People Learn (HPL) we found that students were spending a disproportionate amount of time on tasks, as compared to what we estimated.  Join members of the TLL as we take you through our journey of starting with the original Rice University time on task calculator, incorporation of student feedback on actual time on task, and the Wake Forest workload calculator to estimate time on task in our online courses. We will share our process, the subtleties involved in calculation, and the challenges and limitations in calculating time on task. This session will include time for the audience to share their approaches, Q&A, and networking.
