This subject develops understandings of the intentions and principles of curriculum and investigates specifics of curriculum design and implementation to improve and refine curriculum. The subject will focus on curriculum design and evaluation principles, as well as providing the tools for students to analyse and critique curriculum principles, policies and practices. This subject also creates opportunities for students to focus on a negotiated area of curriculum. For example: curriculum structures; new learning theories about ways of knowing and implications for curriculum; transition stages within schooling; innovative learning technologies; gender; indigenous studies; multiculturalism and Australia's role in a global environment; sustainability and environmental issues and/or another curriculum dimension that is of concern to the student within their own context. Students will explore their negotiated focus through presentation and assignment work.
