Curiosity-based learning – presentation


This paper describes a series of experiential educational exercises developed to better engage and more effectively educate master degree students in the necessary foundation skills that comprise a true scholar. It was developed from the atmosphere of viewing the initial disengagement of my students while at the same time recalling, as  a student, my own boredom and frustrations with traditional educational methods. As a Chulalongkorn University instructor with over 23 years of classroom experience, the author would like offer the colleagues this effective program that has been fine-tuned over the last 6 years. The program is a 6 step process that includes multi-modes of student self-expression and processes. They are expected to represent their ideas orally, in writing and diagrammed visually while learning the effectiveness and appropriateness of each. The example described in this paper was developed to prepare  students entering Chulalongkorn’s  ethnomusicology program on anthropological theories, but its core activities were already generalized and easily applicable to most subject areas.
