Joint paper on the ‘liquid curriculum’ published

Technology, Pedagogy and Education have published the latest collaborative paper to emerge from the CURLIEW project on virtual worlds, available here.

The summary:

This paper presents findings from a large-scale study which explored the socio-political impact of teaching and learning in virtual worlds on UK higher education. Three key themes emerged with regard to constructing curricula for virtual world teaching and learning, namely designing courses, framing practice and locating specific student needs. The authors argue that the findings indicate that ‘liquid learning’ and ‘liquid curricula’ are central concepts and practices that can be used to democratise the way technology-enhanced learning can and should be integrated into higher education.
