This article is a guest post which may or may not be a paid placement in Getting Smart providing marketing for the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) series on what they're calling 'profession-based learning' (Pro-BL). The third module of the series leads educators gently toward this model, playing old standards like Kolb's model and Bloom's taxonomy before leading them to AWS Educate and 'preparing students for the real world' (which involves crucially an "entrepreneurial mindset". You'll find the upsell on page 46. It's all beautifully designed and packaged, but while it feels persuasive, and presents itself as revolutionary, it seems to me more like a grab-bag of edu-speak components leading readers to develop corporate partnerships and adopt an employer-friendly set of curricular resources and services.
