EFOP 3127 - CURRICULUM: PERSPECTIVES AND ISSUES (K-12)
The course draws on current content in the field of curriculum studies. Contemporary approaches to development and research draw on increasingly diverse disciplinary perspectives and diverse methods of inquiry. Curriculum perspectives and issues are central to the often contentious educational discourses in the public arena as well as in the academy as curriculum decisions are being made related to policy, practice and research, informed points of view are crucial to those engaged in such work. This course is intended to capture some of the contentious local, national and international discourses for which the curriculum field is known and, in particular, how these discourses influence curriculum policy and practice toward intended and unintended consequences.
