Most books and textbooks, in particular, were designed with linear learning in mind. Left to right. Start at the beginning and work through to the end. Leap frog from bold heading to bold heading.
Online learning doesn’t work that way.
You search. You click. You read. You open another window. You search some more. You share what you’re learning. You search and click to find other places to learn – online course or workshops or conferences, in-person experiences, and blended environments.
As you click, you think critically to select informed sources, you create your own content to share and communicate, and you collaborate on new resources for learning.
We pursue a click-through curriculum, ideally, one that’s self-directed.
What skills do learners need to maximize their experience of learning in this way? What skills do we need to develop click-through curricula? These are curricula that expand to include all offerings for all students, regardless of prerequisites and traditional course sequencing.
Click-through curriculum. Brave new world of teaching and learning.
