UNESCO-IBE International Forum 21 November – 9 December 2011


I have just completed my registration for the UNESCO-IBE annual forum; this year it will address Socio-Cultural Diversity through the Curriculum. The event takes place over three weeks (21 November – 9 December) and each week, delegates are asked to focus on a specific question – which is open for debate and discussion. This is a great opportunity to explore strategies and pedagogy in curriculum design with experts from around the world.

  • Week 1 – What diversity aspects should be included in the curriculum?
  • Week 2 – How could teachers develop a curriculum that addresses socio-cultural diversity?
  • Week 3 – How should student’s learning be assessed in light of their diverse needs?

Given that Scottish education is currently going through the process of curricular reform, I will be writing one or two papers based on these questions – from my perspective in Scotland. Although some issues will be locally based, some aspects will apply to boththe regional and international landscape.

I’ll post updates on my blog as it happens…
