On Living Curriculum - A Conversation with Gregory Biggs and Tristian Stobie

Listen to the Director of Fieldwork Education, Gregory Biggs on the new Future Learning Design Podcast, ‘On Living Curriculum - A Conversation with Gregory Biggs and Tristian Stobie’.

This episode explores the current challenges international education is faced with and how Fieldwork Education and others such as Cambridge Assessment International Education and International Baccalaureate can continue to remind relevant in the international community.

The podcast features Gregg, Tristen and host Tim Logan responding to the pressing questions in education right now:

  • How do we keep curriculum living, and responsive to the needs of learners?
  • How do we avoid the perennial problem of the racetothefinish of a curriculum that is 'an inch thick and a mile wide'?
  • How does curriculum content (not just knowledge, but skills, attitudes, dispositions) reflect a local context? And how local is local?
  • And where does this leave the concept of an international curriculum? Whose values

The Future Learning Design Podcast, in partnership with Intrepid News, brings together a network of passionate educators and entrepreneurs who are intentionally redesigning the experience of learning in school, work and life, to enable people to grow, innovate and thrive.
