Industry curation handout fv

  1. 1. Introducing Industry Curation as a model – the best of all worlds Industry Curation Education MarketingIndustry Curation aims to reveal meanings and relationships through the use of original objects. This is doneby first-hand experienceand by illustrative media as well as the communication of factual information.It is derived from the idea of heritage interpretation. Heritage interpretation is used to communicate thenature, origin, and purpose of historical, natural, or cultural resources, objects, sites and phenomena usingpersonal or non-personal methods. Examples include audio tours of well-known tourist spots or informationboards at national parks, or at Te Papa museum, where displays are interpreted for a wide audience.At the Open Polytechnic, we can use this model to curate a specific industry. Any industry is easily defined bykey areas or themes. Business, for example, is likely to have these key areas, for example: Insurance,Marketing, Accounting, Small business, HR, Finance and Legislation.Each of these is then defined around themechanisms used to implement these areas/themes. This part of the Framework would be presented in theform of a website.The website would funnel potential students towards educational qualifications. This part of the model iswhere the Learning Management System starts. It would include information about qualifications, careers,pathways, enrolment into educational institution and ePortfolio facilities. This is where people are able tosign up to start collecting artifacts, collate assessment activities and engage with industry and educationorganisations. It is important to note that this web presence does not require enrolment or application tothe institution. It is a free access service. It is envisioned that the ePortfolio element could be offered forLearners to begin their collection of artefacts prior to committing to enrolling for the qualification. Thisallows people to ‘get familar’ with the Industry area without having to commit to enrolling to discover that itmay or may not be their ‘cup of tea’.Industry Curation – example of Business Management in New Zealand v1.0 Page 1

  4. 4. How it works Every element, artifact or concept is explored in depth. Describe  Describe the artifact in such a way that it provides a clear idea of where it sits in the industry Define  Define the artifact’s characteristics  Interpret the artifact for someone who has never Interpret encountered it before  Support the use or understanding of the artifact with an interactive tool that Support can be used in the industry (app for mobile device or desktop), or provide an interactive experience that Educate better supports the understanding of the artifact (video, learning object, drag- drop, etc)  Educate the users through activities and provide an ePortfolio elementIndustry Curation – example of Business Management in New Zealand v1.0 Page 4
  5. 5. Example – Human Resources element of Business Management in NewZealand • Describe Human Resources in relation to Legislation – Current legislation and its effect on Business Management – Where legislation related to HR starts (parliament), by whom (legislators, lobbyists) and how (legislation process), Acts and regulations, etc • Define Human Resources in relation to its characteristics – (this is where we need the Business team to help!) • Interpret Human Resources in a simple manner that the average person can understand – Take both Describe and Define and give it some wording that makes it easier to understand. – Interpretation includes current practices, history, tensions, influences, new models, future trends – Using rich media will assist in this part • Support this artifact with examples – This area is where Effective Practice is demonstrated and advocated by the Industry – Provide templates of documents that can be re-purposed by anyone – Provide interactive tools that capture data, such as Apps, interactive PDF, web forms, etc. • Educate people in how to gain qualifications in HR – Careers in HR – Pathways to gaining a qualification using the Business Management in New Zealand curation site – Enrolment in relevant course (courseware as facilitation guide) – Assessable activities that can be saved to an ePortfolio (provided by the OP or individuals own)Industry Curation – example of Business Management in New Zealand v1.0 Page 5
