Curriculum Design

Curriculum today needs to satisfy two basic educational requirements. One it has to reflect the broader aims of education catering to the diversity of background, abilities or schools of a vast nation. Along with this, it has to provide opportunities to identify and nurture the individual differences of all the learners, even of the same age.


The idea of curriculum is hardly new- but the way we understand and apply it, has altered over the years. In the constructive paradigm, curriculum is viewed more as a conceptual structure for decision making rather than mere details of what is to be done in the classroom. Curriculum should guide a teacher to choose the right content, instructional strategies and assessment methods from the numerous approaches available. For curriculum workers, curriculum designing should be a journey that includes many successes and failures in the process of planning, teaching, and learning while exploring new territories to map out and conquer.
