Digital Curriculum

The deeply digital curriculum is a concept that is changing learning and teaching in schools and is now having an impact on higher education. Students want to learn digitally, and colleges need to learn how to teach digitally.

Terms such as going deeply digital, low threshold feedback, and makerspaces are causing higher education faculty, administrators, and instructional designers to reconsider teaching approaches.
