Global Learning Qualifications Framework | Degree Planning and Academic Review | SUNY Empire State College

Global Learning Qualifications Framework | Degree Planning and Academic Review | SUNY Empire State College | ART: Curriculum Review and Design for Transformation of Learning | Scoop.it

The Global Learning Qualifications Framework (GLQF) is a culmination of more than 90 countries and various organizations’ account of what constitutes college-level learning. Your knowledge in any particular area touches upon the eight learning domains (specialized knowledge, contextual knowledge, integrated knowledge, communication, information literacy, sociocultural engagement, ethical responsibility, self-regulated learning), but in varying amounts and with great overlap.

 

To be assessed for your learning, don’t try to respond to each definition. Try to think about how your learning has developed over time in the application of the learning domains.

 

Each definiton is followed by questions to consider. Do not expect to answer all of these questions, but pick and choose the ones that best fit your learning in your field. They are there to help you think about what you know and how you can describe your learning.

Kaartdijin Noongar

Kaartdijin in Noongar means 'knowledge'. Noongar people have lived in the south-west of Western Australia for more than 45,000 years. The aim of the Kaartdijin website is to share the richness of our knowledge, culture and history in order to strengthen our community and promote wider understanding.

If you are working on course development in an Education faculty or working  with pre-service teachers (whether or not they are Indigenous or non-Indigenous), check out research done by the team from the Indigenous Education and Leadership Centre in the Faculty of Education at Monash (http://monash.edu/education/future-students/why-study-with-us/indigenous-education/)  This is especially relevant to the Australian context.

Why We Need A "Why?" - YouTube

As shrinking budgets, skeptical publics, and rising alternatives continue to threaten the end of higher education, we host this conversation as a contemplation of what the end – or purpose – of higher education should be. We will also reflect on how individual teachers might find their own core reason for teaching a specific class, and ways to build buy-in to that reason among students.

As we continue to work on the university curriculum, note work being done in our schools.  I still recall in 1980's when as a History teacher,  the curriculum requirements allowed us to completely omit the modules about Australia's First Nations.

Integrating technology in your classroom is not only about knowing the technicalities part of the process, it is also, most importantly, about knowing how and what to do with that technology. Issues of copyright and  proper use of digital materials always comes to the forefront in such discussions and teachers usually face serious problems concerning the legality of the digital materials they use from the net.
