Let’s play hide and seek with curriculum. You go first because the curriculum is already hiding. Hidden Curriculum can be described as things that your students need to learn that was not consciously intended to be taught in your course.


A very broad example is that with almost any online course, there are likely technical skills and tools that your students will need to figure out in order to even begin the course. Mac users who have had to have had to run PC software for a course will know what I mean. Think about what you teach and find some hidden curriculum. Let us know what it is in a Tweet. Supreme extra extend points if you create or share some resources that counter-act some of this sneaky curriculum.
