- Design curriculum challenges for today's university
- Friedman, Ken
- Curriculum development is a large systemic enterprise. Curriculum involves course planning, course content, pedagogical delivery, and learning objectives for the individual teacher. For the student, it involves learning styles, personal development, mastery of content, and mastery of skills. At the program level, it requires coordination among teachers and across courses. At the school and university level, it involves other issues still. In design, curriculum development involves eight kinds of education. In university, these include undergraduate education, professional education, and research training. Many schools also offer lifelong learning, continuing education, and executive education. Some schools offer vocational training and special courses. Design is both a field of professional practice and a research discipline. The plural dimensions of research and practice both affect curriculum needs.
