Conceptualizing Courses through Communicative reflexivity; Lecturers' Voices
Session Time and Location
Lecturers across three continents, redesigned their courses in a four-day workshop through the process of communicative reflexivity. The small group model; groups of four facilitated by two facilitators enabled them to articulate their courses in terms of conceptual designs such as cooking pots, bicycles, bridges and houses that reflect their lived experiences. Through intense engagement; reflecting and talking, with the facilitator and other participants, there was a big change in the way lecturers articulated their courses. Academic developers may want to explore the use of concept images in course redesign and how the process brings about curriculum and institutional change.
