For Bookings or enquiries contact:


Curriculum means different things to different people and operates within different levels at an institution. This makes the concept of curriculum highly contested and complex especially within the curriculum decolonisation and transformation debates. To enable coherent and meaningful curricula, academics should critically interrogate their curriculum orientations and the influence this has on their curriculum decisions.

Their curriculum design and development should be approached in a scholarly manner especially when required to evaluate, design, interpret and implement curricula. The workshop will address curriculum as a concept and enable academics to further examine how curriculum policies are shaped by societal, institutional, personal, and interpersonal contexts and processes. The workshop will also introduce academics to key theories that underpin the principles of curriculum design. The workshop provides an opportunity to engage with the conceptual and contextual aspects of curriculum design like constructive alignment and being able to construct contextually relevant intended learning outcomes.
