The aptitudes, attitudes, expectations, and learning styles… is decidedly different from that which existed when faculty and administrators were growing up.”

Gaps in the Curriculum


Repetition in the curriculum

Repetition can be intentional, to reaffirm knowledge and to focus knowledge within specialist areas (e.g. the spiral curriculum).

But sometimes repetition is unintentional and can disengage the learner.

A teacher doesn’t always know what their students already know, particularly when they’re an occasional teacher or a last-minute replacement.

Repetition in the Curriculum


Dynamic learning maps1

We were approached by the faculty to provide an electronic solution to the curriculum map problem.

We speculatively put a bid in to JISC’s ‘Transforming Curriculum Delivery through technology’ programme, and were successful.

The project started in March 2009, and we piloted the first version of DLMs with MB BS Students in the 2009-2010 academic year.

Dynamic learning maps2

Over 500 students and staff have participated in focus groups and feedback sessions.

81% want to know how a teaching session relates to the curriculum

70% say a map would benefit their learning

83% agree that it would be useful for revision

79% agree that it would be useful for reviewing and reflecting

59% agree that it would help them better understand the curriculum

Where next

We’ve just started work on the JISC-CETIS OER bookmarking project which will massively enhance the ease by which resources can be mapped.

We’re on the lookout for partners to take the software forward. If you want to use DLMs at your institution we can host it for you and our team can help you map your curriculum.

We’re going to make the source code available (under a non-commercial license) by the end of the summer.

Where Next?


Thanks
