Curriculum Design Symposium: The Hidden Curriculum - Demystifying challenging and (re)working together: Cross-specialist collaboration to support transitions into HE

This case study documents curricular and pedagogical innovations that address hidden curricula and demystify academic practices for diverse cohorts of undergraduate Architecture students transitioning into HE.


Resulting from cross-specialist collaboration the approach supports diverse student cohorts to combat ‘misrecognition of students from ‘non-traditional’ backgrounds and their abilities’ when ‘academic practices are presented as neutral decontextualised sets of technical skills and literacy that students from socially disadvantaged backgrounds are seen to lack’ (Burke 2015:21). This combines with curricular work that responds to critique of the epistemological basis of histories of art and design upon which curricula are commonly built (Hylton 2019:426).
