CD 1: Curriculum Orientation and Contexts

When: Monday, 17 April 2023
Where: Online Event
Start time:10:00

Curriculum orientation and curriculum context means different things to different people and operates at different institutional levels. 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 14 to evaluate, design, interpret and implement curricula. At the end of the workshop you should be able to: Develop, describe and have an informed understanding of curriculum concepts and orientation; identify and analyse the global, national and institutional forces that shape the curriculum and the relationship between these; discuss the shifting nature of knowledge showing basic shifts in application and processes; reliably, accurately and coherently engage with the principles of constructive alignment; reflect on your current curriculum development practices and processes and create a curriculum map for your course. This course will follow a blended approach in the first semester and fully asynchronous (Ulwazi only) in the second semester.
