The TDU-Xceleron Framework

Xceleron’s solution model focuses on addressing this gap. We have broken our solution down into 5 interdependent components.

Learning Method

With its focus on aligning education to industry-valued skills, the Xceleron method for learning is derived from the theory of Connectivism, which has been commonly referred to as the ‘learning theory for the digital age’. It seeks to explain complex learning in a rapidly changing social digital world. It has been covered in detail in the section Theory behind the Xceleron framework.

 

Extensive Community

Xceleron aims to build extensive partnerships with industry and academia for content creation and delivery. Networking and community building are the foundation of Connectivism as these foster an environment of collaboration. The collaborative community will also enable rapid creation/curation of real-world relevant content.

 

Outcome Analytics

All learners are not the same in their abilities or their choices. They do not aim for similar outcomes either. Understanding what works for whom will enable personalisation of education. Therefore, feedback is important for both the learner and the teacher. It makes identification of gaps possible and alleviates them.

 

Skills Framework

All assessments will be tied to a skills framework. A student will progress along a chosen skill map as he/she selects and completes a series of electives. Modularisation of delivery will be directed by well-researched goals and guidelines.

 

Content Guidelines and Best Practices

Relevant content will be created/curated to fit the learning method. Crowdsourcing content will be essential for the variety of electives envisioned. We will support academic, research, and industry experts with a playbook and a content team that will assist them through the process of content creation.
