International Bureau of Education – Toolkit on Curriculum Development – Submission of Interest


I recently blogged on my intention to submit a proposal for inclusion in the 2010 edition of the UNESCO-IBE Toolkit on Curriculum Development. I have now written my submission of interest and sent it into the Community of Practice. I won’t bore you with all the details (just yet anyway) but here’s a sneak preview of what I hope to include if accepted. Focussed very much on the Senior Phase curriculum in Scotland, but more widely related to personalisation and choice in learning and teaching. This would probably be of interest to any professional either going through, or about to enter education reform.

Curriculum for Excellence – Forging Personalisation and Choice in the Senior Phase Curriculum.

Parts of the curriculum in Scotland were developed separately and, taken together, they did not provide the best basis for an excellent education for every child. The National Debate showed that people wanted a curriculum that will fully prepare today’s children for adult life in the 21st century, be less crowded and better connected, and offer more choice and enjoyment. This case study will examine the need for change throughout the learning infrastructure, in particular within the Senior Phase curriculum (broadly 15 – 18 years). It will describe historic practices, the strategies and policies developed nationally and locally to inform change, the implementation of curriculum development across schools and the wider learning infrastructure and provide evidence that the outcomes for young people have been improved as a result.
