Is our faculty’s role as curriculum creator or curator?

Is our faculty’s role as curriculum creator or curator?

Reported by EdSurge, we may have made the challenge of spinning up new online classes this year harder than we needed it to be. Because many of our faculty hold a belief that their course needs to be all theirs. But with thousands of faculty teaching similar courses, and countless organizations creating articles, podcasts, videos and websites about your course’s topic, you don’t have to start from scratch.

The takeaway? We need to encourage our faculty to embrace their role as curator and translator. That that is the very essence of teaching.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
