Assisting Curriculum Change through Departmental Initiatives
Roy, Dale; Borin, Paola; Kustra, Erika
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n112 p21-32 Win 2007
What factors encourage and sustain enduring curriculum change at a typical North American university? Like many faculty members and groups working in teaching and learning centers, the authors have been concerned with understanding how curriculum change takes place in a university. Their group, the Centre for Leadership in Learning at McMaster University, has been involved in many initiatives intended to bring about change in individual courses, and several attempts to improve undergraduate education at an institutional level. In this article, the authors share what they have learned about influencing departmental thinking around sustainable curriculum change and teaching, including a series of insights that may be useful to others treading a similar path.
