Meta-Design as a Pedagogical Framework for Encouraging Student Agency and Democratizing the Classroom
Hethrington, Christopher
Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v6 n2 Article 12 2015
As diverse social and economic pressures are applied to post-secondary education, innovative approaches to pedagogical methodology are required. Given that the new norm in both industry and academia is that of constant change, a flexible and responsive approach is required along with a framework that empowers students with the skills to become independent thinkers and lifelong learners. Meta-design is a conceptual framework that can provide that flexibility and empower students with greater agency in their education.
