At one of the breakout sessions, I offered to share some materials that we’ve put together about curriculum maps. Essentially, this is a methodology that includes examples of what an optimal curriculum looks like that includes computation (programming/ tools) and math (quantitative knowledge). The idea is that by looking at how other schools have done it, you could architect a logical, compelling story and/or do an assessment at your school
This would give you a model to use with those you’re trying to educate and influence, namely your peers in the departments and administration (dept. heads, deans, etc.)
I would be willing to share the material with you.
My suggestion is that a webinar/online video call would be the best format.
Say, end of February or so.
I’d like a show of hands to gauge interest.
PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS THREAD IF YOU’D BE INTERESTED.
One option is to open it to others beyond just those currently in the community (you, if you’re seeing this post). That’s step # 2. First, let me know what you think.
Also, apparently, NAGT has some experienced folk who support these curriculum discussions with departments, related to the “matrix approach”. (Can you believe they call it “the matrix”? Maybe it’s a good karma/fate thing.) I or they can integrate info on that into the video talk.
LET US KNOW.
