EDUC 522 - Reshaping Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning

(3)
SU. The dynamic relationship between curriculum as content and as process, between what is to be learned and the instructional practices used to organize and mediate it for students, is at the heart of educational practice. This course focuses on the theory and practice of curriculum and pedagogy, examined in terms of both the perspectives that shape them and the ways in which they serve or fail to serve all learners. Issues addressed include the concept, purpose, and social context of curriculum; the historical perspectives that influence current and future directions; the relationship between curriculum and instruction; and the connection between perspectival commitments, curriculum, and instruction. The course will also address issues and practices related to assessment and instructional technology. Readings, discussions, interaction with practitioners, investigation, and application will form important activities in the development of an understanding of and personal perspective on curriculum and instruction.
