A Model for Curricular Revision: The Case of Engineering
Harris, Michael; Cullen, Roxanne
Innovative Higher Education, v34 n1 p51-63 Apr 2009
The ability to teach one's self is a critical skill for workers in the 21st century because of the rapidity of change and innovation. To educate students to meet this challenge, we need to re-envision curriculum with the goal of producing graduates who have the ability to complete the transition from novice to expert after graduation and continue to deepen their expertise throughout their careers. Using engineering education as a model of current efforts in curricular revision, we present a method for curricular review based on learning types in order to design an undergraduate experience that is transformative and congruent with a learner-centered approach.
