IS COLLABORATION IN BLENDED CURRICULUM DESIGN A DANGEROUS IDEA?

Friday 25 March 2011 | 9am–4pm (rescheduled from 10 December 2010)
New Law School Building, The University of Sydney


WARNING. This is not your usual colloquium. Collaboration is the word!

This colloquium is hosted by an interdisciplinary research team drawn from the Humanities and Social Sciences and Sydney eLearning at the University of Sydney. The research has focused on supporting academics in their engagement with blended learning. A key outcome of this research has been to highlight the importance of collaboration in blended curriculum design.

Given the traditionally individualistic approach to curriculum design in the Humanities and Social Sciences, is collaboration a dangerous idea in blended learning? What are the optimal types of collaboration for academics embarking on blended learning? What challenges does collaboration pose for academics and educational designers?

After a brief overview of the research and key findings, the day will be structured around opportunities for exchanging ideas and experiences in a relaxed and collegial environment, and activities aimed at building conceptual pictures of collaboration in blended learning design.

We will... THINK - MOVE - SHARE - CREATE - NETWORK - COLLABORATE

Who should attend:

  • Academics
  • Educational designers and technologists
  • Educational managers
  • Students interested in collaborating in the design of their learning.
