eLDSS: Using an Opening Curriculum Approach for Your Professional Development in Educational Technologies – Parts I & II

Strengthening the “Learn to learn” element in the curriculum is one of the key teaching and learning initiatives in PolyU’s Strategy Plan 2019/20 – 2024/25.

Have you ever considered opening the curriculum to co-create the syllabus with students to reinforce their ability to “learn to learn” for the workplace of the future?

If your answer is Yes, why don’t you try the opening curriculum approach first in your professional development to keep you updated in teaching and learning offered by EDC?

Come to this two-part workshop to learn the powerful idea of opening curriculum approach, which is derived from an institution-wide teaching and learning project funded by PolyU’s Learning and Teaching Committee “Co-creation of Content and Curriculum with Students in Rapidly Advancing Business and Technology Areas”. You will be amazed how diversifying this idea can be implemented in different disciplines through your first-hand professional development experience in the area of educational technologies in these two-part workshop.
