A Case Study
Authors: L. Herod
Collection: Research Materials
This case study explored the process of curriculum deliberation (Schwab, 1973) in
an online forum by two pluralistic teams of stakeholders from the field of adult literacy.
Given that the field of adult literacy is, for the most part, geographically dispersed and resource poor, it has been limited in its ability to work together in areas such as curriculum development.
The use of computer-mediated communication (CMC),however, presents a potentially effective and inexpensive means by which stakeholders could utilize the process of curriculum deliberation to develop and refine learning materials that would meet both local and global levels needs.
