IleneDawn: My Dream Learning Design Project Proposal - Merge Learning Design & Multicultural Learning to Create Online Module for HE teachers
Cloud created by:
11 January 2013
Time to design an open & online participatory module on multicultural learning & teaching in higher education that
- is cross-curricular (eg, science AND social science instructors participate), interdisciplinary and collabortive.
- models learning circle principles & practices of Highlander Folkschool (Myles Horton and Septima Clark as well as Stephen Brookfield; more akin to Wenger than Freire) as these lend themselves to both thinking about learning design generally and learning design within this course specifically.
- draws on "Islands of empowerment: Facilitating multicultural learning communities in college" by Chavez, on "Women’s proper place and student-centered pedagogy" by Gómez.
- Offer new online course within Preparing Future Faculty Program (PFF).
- Begin with 20 registered students and an equal number of open participants.
- Course materials - teacher and participant generated - shared via common blog with Creative Commons license (share alike, attribution, noncommercial).
- Draw on learning design to complete course outline.
- Center willing to offer online course embedding MOOC principles & practices.
- Successful past F2F run of course, and student interest in core course for this topic specific course.
- Respected PFF program in US context
- As part of supportive interdisciplinary & intergenerational learning community, I have colleagues locally I can also call on throughout the design process.
- closed course - already exists; so perhaps a hybrid on campus for first run with credit and non-credit options; grad students and posdocs joined by teaching staff and interested faculty
- what else?
- Form/join study circle in OLDS MOOC
- Gather materials that can inform the course - content, design
- Wrtie a blog pieces that addresses WHY of multicultural teaching & learning philosophy, and WHAT of multicultural/inclusive learning & teaching design
