“How can I integrate a resilient approach to teaching in these times?

A surprising answer was provided by StudioBlended. Tikvah coached me in making my educational approach and impact last longer.

I realized that acquiring knowledge is a process that obeys the rules of resilience very strongly.”

How can you design content that is resilient for up to a decade? We believe technical resilience can only come from within the technical content of your course or degree. And we bring you back the essence, the simplicity of teaching. Find our finite technical methodology at StudiOpedia, in 25 modules.

A technically resilient course or degree - one that can last up to a decade - must have an open-building framework. The frame takes the longest to design, pilot, consolidate, but if you do it well, you have many years to enjoy it.

The open-building framework by Tikvah Breimer (MSc MEd MSc) was developed over the past decade, and is technically perfect - like a pencil. What is technical perfection? It means that it keeps its qualities in whatever context. If you throw it in water, and allow it to dry it can still write. Should you keep it for a decade, and then try it again: it writes. It is perfect. Which is why it is not further developed, you just see variations of pencils, no difference in the original design. It is already technically perfect.

Likewise, our open-building framework for curriculum design is technically perfect, and fit for purpose, whatever your unique nature and context is.

Once you have that framework, you can insert learning modules, and easily replace, update, tailor them to each delivery, whilst an open-building framework stays intact.

It is an essential visual analogy that also calms your approach to (ever complex) systems between technologies and people, such as in communciation, feedback and assessment.

The open-building framework reflects your level of technical expertise in your field. The more essential you are able to make it - some 10 ‘big ideas’ each of understanding and knowledge, the more expertise you typically have. For this strategic approach, you must also take into account the ‘hype cycle of concepts’ in your (interdisciplinary) body of knowledge.

With an eye to your students, and technical resilience of your curriculum, we look at the future of work, skills and capabilities they need beyond just technical/digital. This angle may even completely reinvision the curriculum design - depending on the balance you make with knowledge and understanding.

We are here especially for you as unique educational professional, to come alongside you as you work on the curriculum design of your module, course, training or degree, so that you can offer good and resilient education in the long run.
