EDU5705 Curriculum Design and Evaluation (FOEDU)


Semester 1 (WEB)Toowoomba


Units 1.0 (070301) Band 5


Synopsis

Students enrolled in this course will be engaged in an inquiry into curriculum practices within a teaching and learning context - this might be their current place of work or one to which they have access. Students, through an inquiry based approach, will begin to investigate factors that impact on curriculum at these sites. To do so, students will first be introduced to various schools of thought in the area of curriculum design and evaluation. In doing this students will be engaged in a review of current curriculum practices at the site. This review will draw on critical theory to analyse curriculum documents, exploring various themes and relationships. Students will develop personalised frameworks for design and evaluation of curriculum and use this framework to inform the relationship between theory and practice in a particular area of study (Arts, Sciences, SOSE, Maths, etc.).
