Adopting technology should mean adapting it to meet learning needs

Adopting technology should mean adapting it to meet learning needs The thrust of this essay is that there is an increasing emphasis on the capabilities graduates need to have. We live in a changing, complex world and so post-secondary programs need to equip students with the capacity to adapt their learning into working in a variety of new situations. Planning for the unknown is always tricky and needs to be done with care. Using technology in designing post-secondary programs provides new opportunities but also adds another layer of complexity. Four aspects considered essential are: defining what we are asking students to ultimately achieve (graduate capabilities); designing at both program and course levels; working together in teams (the complexity demands that); and obtaining evidence that we are on the right track. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png On the Horizon Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The thrust of this essay is that there is an increasing emphasis on the capabilities graduates need to have. We live in a changing, complex world and so post-secondary programs need to equip students with the capacity to adapt their learning into working in a variety of new situations. Planning for the unknown is always tricky and needs to be done with care. Using technology in designing post-secondary programs provides new opportunities but also adds another layer of complexity. Four aspects considered essential are: defining what we are asking students to ultimately achieve (graduate capabilities); designing at both program and course levels; working together in teams (the complexity demands that); and obtaining evidence that we are on the right track.
