Education involves setting goals and providing learners structured learning experiences through which these goals are achieved. The curriculum of an educational programme specifies the inter-related elements of its goals, content, learning activities, assessment and evaluation. Knowledge of curriculum theories and practices will guide teachers in the design and the review of their educational programmes.
This web-based resource package, consisting of a series of modules on topics in curriculum studies, aims to enhance the competence of university teachers in programme design and implementation. These modules will introduce major concepts in curriculum studies including components of curriculum, approaches to curriculum design, needs analysis, curriculum goals, instructional design, curriculum sequencing, curriculum implementation, learning experiences, assessment and curriculum evaluation, etc.
