SEnDIng vocational curriculum for Data Science and Internet of Things
Curriculum is increasingly seen by stakeholders as a dynamic framework guiding the teaching and learning processes, and as a steering mechanism for quality. The SEnDIng project designed a curriculum for Data Science and Internet of Things VET programs. The key characteristics of SEnDIng curriculum are:
- Multi-disciplinarily. The modules developed cover three disciplines: Data Science, Internet of Things and Transversal Skills.
- Modular. For each discipline, the curriculum is separated in educational modules. Each module is further divided in learning units at three levels: Introduction, Core and Advanced. This permits the learners to create their own learning paths according to their needs.
- Learning outcomes-oriented. Based on the macro level learning outcomes design previously done, the learning outcomes of each learning unit have been defined. Learning outcomes oriented curriculum is an effective way to avoid potential mismatches between academia and industry, and furthermore to promote active learning and inclusive teaching
