Authors: Michael Horswell, Nevil Quinn, Harry West
The greatest challenge in teaching a technology related subject, is the rate at which technology changes and progresses. Designing curricula in such contexts, requires a shift out of a ‘training’ mind set, to be both anticipatory and market responsive, as well as meeting student expectations. This presentation will explore our experience in GIS curriculum design, based on a co-productive model with internal and external stakeholders as well as current students and recent graduates.
