    Abstract

    Talanga Seminar Series: September 26, 2012 This presentation situates the postgraduate experience as a liminal space in which the student is constantly negotiating between the ‘known’ rules of academic engagement at the undergraduate level and the ‘unknown’ expectations of the postgraduate course. It draws on the notion of liminality (Van Gennep, 1908; Turner, 1969) as a space between other spaces, a ‘threshold’ or ‘transitionary’ space of being, and explores the role of purposeful curriculum design through reflective teaching practice. Recommendations include a strong PG academic-orientation, short-course bridging programmes, and guided learning experiences through assessment for learning. A comparative analysis of the delivery of an Education postgraduate course offered in three teaching modes over 2011 – 2012 is presented to demonstrate critical pedagogical reflection based on a small scale post-graduate survey conducted in 2007.
