Early in 2020, I wrote about my experiences of transferring to on-line studying: studying to make use of new instruments, altering the best way I taught, and coping with the challenges of distant evaluation. Sitting, unmentioned within the background, was the truth that the school the place I educate had already agreed to revamp our electrical engineering curriculum, which directs the lives of scholars throughout three of their 4 years right here. This raised a somewhat vital query: will we follow the previous in these attempting instances, or forge forward with one thing new? In the long run, we determined that we’d press on with the brand new.
Then, simply so as to add to the confusion, administration determined that we must always have two scholar intakes: one in August/September (the standard beginning time for brand new college students), and one in February. This meant that, if we have been quick sufficient, we may trial the brand new curriculum on a small group of scholars that began in February, somewhat than leaping within the deep finish in September. After quite a lot of work, and with a lot materials nonetheless to be developed, we expect we’re able to roll.
Among the finest elements of creating the brand new curriculum has been the criticism and suggestions we’ve had from colleagues, college students, and alumni. Now, with a month to go earlier than we’ll be utilizing the brand new curriculum, I wish to open it as much as critique by you, the Ars readers. I’m able to be the Christmas roast.Learn 27 remaining paragraphs | Feedback
