The UNESCO-IBE Community of Practice on Curriculum Development has recently announced a call for case studies for the 2010 edition of the IBE Training Tools for Curriculum Development – a Resource Pack (TTCD). The TTCD was developed in 2003 as a joint initiative by UNESCO Bangkok and the International Bureau for Education. Since its inception, this Training Tool has been continuously enhanced to develop the capacity of individual and collective education specialists for decision-making, management, and operational roles related to curriculum policy design, development, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and research. The TTCD aims to be used flexibly in a wide range of contexts. To keep abreast of current curricular trends, the TTCD is reviewed annually to maintain its worldwide accessibility as diverse and interesting set of cases to be analysed by the users of the resource.
I plan to contribute this year and will be submitting an expression of interest shortly. Once I have written my Case Study, based on Transformational Curriculum Change in Scotland, I’ll post it to my blog.
