Higher education teaching and learning occurs in very diverse domains that go beyond face to face on-campus classes. Higher Education pedagogies include blended on-line environments, virtual and simulated environments, learning in the workplace and community, field-work, laboratory learning and research-based supervision. A group process will be used to generate an analytical framework based on a review of prior learning from topics in the Higher Education program of studies to identify some constants across these environments regarding what constitutes effective teaching and successful learning. Following this, students will conduct an appreciative inquiry of a pedagogical context that has relevance for them. They will consider published studies to identify and examine the distinctive features of the specific pedagogical context and the implications these features have for engaged and effective pedagogy. The outcomes of this appreciative inquiry will be published as a formal report that will be shared with as well as discussed and critiqued by the other topic participants.
Methodologies used in this topic involve student co-creation of the curriculum, portfolio work and active engaged enquiry.
