The lens used to create curriculum in this course is constructive alignment. Students will examine curricula as an iterative design that is a product developed through: shared deliberation on context, policy, politics; scholarship of teaching and learning; and pedagogical imagination. This includes opportunities to examine curricula paradigms for inclusion, blended learning, research, constructivist approaches and authentic workplace and service-learning. Curriculum is presented as space that should be negotiated, communicated, managed and improved within clear processes that reflect quality practices. With this grounding students can build and evaluate a teaching activity, module, course and / or a course.
