Listening to data can reveal strengths and weakness. At Samuel Merritt University we did just that. We set our data to music.
First, we color-coded maps showing the relationship between learning objectives at the course, program and institutional levels. Then, we linked each objective to examples of student work (papers, videos, and images).
Next, we created animated musical scores of the relationship between the program and institutional objectives. The result: A cultural transformation. We engaged our administrators and faculty in assessing stated objectives and comparing it to what is actually happening at the course, program and institutional levels. Faculty discourse deepened and changed from siloed protectionism to examining what content is obsolete, duplicated or absent in the curriculum conversation.
