Venue: Online via Zoom
Theme: Whither the Curriculum?
It is a full two years since FOCI last got together in Izmir University of Economics in December 2019 and since then the situation in which we as curriculum developers have been working has changed beyond recognition. Many of us will have attended workshops and developmental sessions focusing on the methodological and technological implications of our new teaching environments, but maybe it is high time we meet again in the context of a FOCI event, if only remotely, to share our experiences to discuss the current state of the curricular development in our context.
What changes have happened to our curricula as a result of online and hybrid education? What about work of the curriculum team – how has that been affected? What have been the experiences of different institutions? Where do we go from here?
This FOCI event will be an opportunity for participants to share their experience of, and discuss ideas related to these issues. The intention is that participants will come away with some concrete ideas of how to set up and how to ensure the smooth operation of a curriculum team.
The forum will take an informal and hands-on approach to the “nitty-gritty” of curriculum work aiming to complement the formal presentation of papers or workshops to be found at other professional gatherings such as conferences, seminars and workshops. It is intended that participants will come away from the Forum with concrete examples of how other institutions have responded to the challenges raised by the theme. This will involve whole-group discussion and smaller groups focusing on particular areas who will then share the issues they discussed with participants from the other groups. The topics for the smaller focus groups’ discussion will be decided from suggestions made by participants on the registration form.
FOCI events depend on the full and active participation of the participants, and in this online context all the more so. It is not a conference where speakers deliver input, but a practical round-table event to share experiences.
To register: The deadline for registration is Friday 12th November 2021. To register download and complete this form and send to fociturkey@gmail by the deadline.
