Curriculum Design and Review
Even though we’re in at least the seventh decade of the Digital Era, most education and training programs are still designed to reflect Industrial Era topics, issues, and principles. There have certainly been digital upgrades in terms of delivery mechanisms – including the use of online learning platforms and tablets – but the content being delivered in most cases has not been similarly upgraded. And yet every day we are reminded of how a wide range of industries, professions, and functional areas are being impacted – sometimes dramatically – by evolving social and digital technologies.
Given that, it is incumbent upon academic institutions, training service providers, and internal training and development departments to upgrade their curricula to reflect Digital Era realities and technology trends. These upgrades must reflect a holistic and integrated approach to social and digital technologies from both individual and organizational perspectives, recognizing both applications and implications, as well as opportunities and challenges. The resulting curricula should be comprehensive and thorough and incorporate best practices guidance.
As a sought-after thought leader and expert in social and digital technologies, as well as a former academic recognized for her pragmatic and innovative approaches to curriculum development, Denovati’s Founder and Principal Courtney Hunt has both the knowledge and experience to create, revise and review both academic and practitioner-focused curricula to ensure they meet today’s technologies and standards while remaining flexible enough to accommodate the ongoing evolution of both.
