EDU5705 Principles of Quality Curricula

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Teacher Education and Early Childhood


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 analyse curriculum documents, exploring various themes and relationships. Students will develop theoretical perspectives for design and evaluation of curriculum and use these perspectives to inform the relationship between theory and practice in a particular area of study.
