Section Description

This course examines curriculum design, implementation, coordination, and management from a broad educational and organizational perspective. Broadly, the course is designed to be relevant to a spectrum of learning stages, including Early Childhood, P12 schools, post-secondary and higher education, and adult learning, as well as for diverse learning environments, including formal and informal/out-of-school learning settings. The course also addresses the role of educational in/equity and social justice in curriculum design and implementation. Class will be structured as an advanced doctoral seminar, including lectures, discussions, and applied methods workshops. Overview: We will begin the semester developing shared understanding of pedagogical approaches relevant to different stages of learners and different learning environments. We will explore different forms of learning assessments, and backwards mapping designs for curriculum. We will also study differentiation in curriculum to facilitate equitable inclusion of all learners. Finally, we will investigate leadership for curriculum implementation and management. Class assignments are designed to be relevant and transferable for each student’s professional setting.

Section Expectation

The 3 credit, graduate level course has three main learning objectives for students that address theoretical and conceptual knowledge, applied practices, and writing/communication. 1. Students will develop understanding of the theoretical foundations and approaches of curriculum design, as relevant to Early Childhood – Adult Learners in informal and formal learning environments. This will include: a. Pedagogy and instructional practices b. Assessment and evaluation of learning c. Backwards mapping and curriculum designs d. Differentiation and diverse learning needs e. Educational equity and social justice curriculum designs Students will develop these skills through course readings, class discussions, and personal reflections. 2. Students will develop and apply skills in curriculum design and management, including designing curriculum for a professional setting, designing assessment tools for key curricular outcomes, constructing course syllabi and communication for learners, and/or developing a teaching philosophy statement. We will develop these skills through workshops in class, as well as collaborative work (e.g., thought partners, research teams) to refine research designs and further mastery of core concepts. 3. Students will refine practical and academic writing skills to ensure work is understandable to a broad array of readers. We will refine writing through structured assignments, class mini-lectures, detailed feedback from faculty, and practice revising and refining final submissions.
