B/twixt: A Meta-learning Record

Research output: Non-textual formDesign / ArchitectureResearch


The B'twixt record of meta-learning proposes exploring the interstitial spaces running between the classes, the grade assignments, and the course requirements. If the transcript is a measure of the taught curriculum, what might change if we were to complement that transcript with a record that makes visible the learned curriculum? To support the argument that a liberal arts education is more than the sum of its parts, how might we measure growth differently to increase the visibility of performances that largely go unregistered and give students a new view on their learning journey?javascript:void(0);
As a provocation to institutions of higher learning I worked on a speculative design project to see what comes from putting a different material artefact out into the learning ecosystem. The proposition to give students formative feedback on how learning happens over time led to the B’twixt record of meta learning. The material prop, equal parts improbable solution and naive speculation led to real debate.
