The aptitudes, attitudes, expectations, and learning styles… is decidedly different from that which existed when faculty and administrators were growing up.”Educating the Net Generation experience & expectations of learnersMore emphasis on interactive & participative environmentsPersonalisation & Learning PreferencesWidespread use and access to external learning resourcesReflection / portfolio learning directly embedded in the curriculumWhy Dynamic Learning Maps?Understanding linkageswithin the curriculumStudentsCurriculum officersOccasional TeachersAdministratorsCommunicating Complex CurriculaRole in Quality Assurance/Monitoring Why curriculum Maps?TaughtHarden, 2001LearnedDeclaredGaps in the CurriculumRepetition 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 CurriculumWe 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 MapsOver 500 students and staff have participated in focus groups and feedback sessions.81% want to know how a teaching session relates to the curriculum70% say a map would benefit their learning83% agree that it would be useful for revision79% agree that it would be useful for reviewing and reflecting59% agree that it would help them better understand the curriculumn=262 Phase 1 medical students Dynamic Learning MapsResourcesPersonal LearningLeap2AReflectionEmerging StandardsOERsXCRICore & Community CurriculaWhere do I start?Connecting ResourcesFeedsConnecting ConceptsPerceptions of the CurriculumDifferent views for different usesDynamic Learning Maps – A demonstrationePortfoliosSearchingThe TimetableModular CoursesCompetency FrameworksMind MapsNavigating the CurriculumOutcomes and SpecialtiesWe’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?For more information about the project, visit or speak to Paul or Simon after this session.And to try it out, come along to our workshop this afternoon.Thanks
