Over five weeks, participants will bring their professional / life experiences and knowledge to this online studio as they work together with external partners, creatively rethinking a complex educational challenge that cuts across sectors and stakeholders. By confronting different perspectives, approaches and views integral to the challenge, you will learn to use a range of creative inquiry techniques to question, explore alternative possibilities and anticipate new learning pathways.
Areas of exploration in this course include:
- Stakeholders and stakesharers
- Visual mapping techniques
- Inquiry-inspired methods and approaches for working together
- Transformation and creative shifts
- Generative learning theory.
This microcredential is designed as an online studio, to enable you to engage in creative experiences and explore ideas relating to a complex educational challenge in transformative ways. Through sharing your early insights in response to the preliminary inquiries, and engaging with others, you can consider how your contributions might add to a thriving community of participants, practitioners and researchers.
During a series of intensive, guided collaborative sessions, you’ll work with other participants in real time to integrate your perspectives, ideas and insights. During that process, participants will work with other stakeholders to rethink a complex educational challenge, and track shifts in learning pathways.
This microcredential is highly collaborative, enabling you to benefit from interactions with others, whilst contributing to the collective’s learning experience. In your individual assessments, you can use those experiences to rethink the complex challenge, make sense of the collective learning and question the relevance of tracking these transformations in your own practice.
