What is different today?
- I plan to reply to myself to keep the threads together and allow an easier reading
- I also plan to number my posts to help the flow
- I will tag them a bit using #30Papers for now, as my short-term goal is to read and share thoughts on 30 articles this coming month
- I will allow a bit more of my own voice, experiences, and perspectives to come through
Today’s Article Summary is of:
Bergmark, U., & Westman, S. (2015). Co-creating curriculum in higher education: promoting democratic values and a multidimensional view on learning. International Journal for Academic Development, 1–13. http://doi.org/10.1080/1360144X.2015.1120734
1/ I read Bergmark & Westman (2015) Co-creating curriculum in higher education http://doi.org/10.1080/1360144X.2015.1120734 http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/1360144X.2015.1120734 #30Papers
2/ Co-creating curriculum seems an engaging activity for democratic teacher-learners who will own the product through engagement
3/ Co-creating curriculum is chaotic and messy, and some challenge the notion students should be involved
4/ This case study studied both the teacher as well as the students, using a critical friend for external input and process
5/ The researchers found co-creating curriculum involved ambiguous views and expectations, inspiration and motivation, and transformation
6/ Organizational hindrances invite further research regarding student engagement and institutional structures + regulations
7/ It is surprising little previous research in co-creating curriculum exists; I wonder if #mooc studies have increased this?
8/ I wonder about the implications for future pedagogy; namely, does co-creating curriuculum lead to different teaching in practice?
Any feedback, thoughts, ideas, or suggestions are appreciated!
