Curriculum Studies - EDUC703

The study of curriculum is central to our understanding of educational institutions. It can be focused on the learning of a single student or group of students; on the formal curriculum of a school or other educational workplace; or it can be expansive in its national and international focus. This unit encompasses each of these areas and introduces you to the breadth of curriculum studies. It considers the nature of curriculum, the relationships between curriculum, knowledge and ideology, curriculum planning, curriculum implementation and evaluation, curriculum change and curriculum futures. The learning tasks in the unit focus on developing an understanding of advanced concepts in the curriculum field. Current issues being researched or unfolding in the curriculum literature are also considered with a view to identifying research trends and possibilities.
