Ad-hoc Education and Research
About the method
Ad-hoc Education and Research method is based on the idea that for any new run of the course/program the curriculum is re-created each time and all the participants participated in this process as well as all the processes related to the program, even partly to an admission campaign. The course organiser (curator) describes in the brief notice which topics he wants to explore and learn. Those descriptions are used to attract other students (participants) and experts (advanced participants). As the participants are on board (in the admission process they also participate in interviewing each other) they start to be involved together with the curator in designing and operating the course. The outcomes are: participants have experiences in co-creating educational environments/ecosystems (communities are also often created as a side-effect); the knowledge is found/created and acquired / skills are trained.
