Overview

Curriculum design does not have one best approach. It evolves over time and is shaped by student needs, collaborative input, and past experiences. A well-designed curriculum directly impacts how a teacher teaches and a student learns. Learn the basics of this fundamental skill and walk through the essential steps to take when designing curriculum: needs analysis, design, implementation, and evaluation. Ilka Kostka and Lucy Bunning offer reflective questions and recommendations for analyzing curricula to inform future change.
