“As technology develops and the fields of research widen, how can teachers conceptualize an effective 21st century curriculum?”
Welcome to this dual course aimed to help you understand more about research based curriculum and instruction. This dual course consists of the following 5 hour courses:
- Curriculum Development
- Research Based Instructional Strategies
The traditional curriculum is ill-equipped to keep up with the educational needs and challenges in today’s dynamic world, highlighting the need to effectively redesign the curriculum. To help students improve in academic achievement, develop an attitude of learning and acquire the skills needed for the demands of the workplace and real life situations, teachers must continually review, reflect on and work to improve their instructional skills. This two-part online PD course highlights the fact that each educator has the responsibility and potential to contribute, even in small ways, to transforming the curriculum. Teachers are provided with research based approaches and strategies that can be incorporated into classrooms to improve the effectiveness of teacher led instruction and encourage active student involvement in learning. The resources, examples and templates included, guide the teachers to plan, develop, integrate and evaluate curriculum more effectively. This information will empower teachers to implement novel ideas in curriculum development within their classrooms, that will help students to face the challenges of the dynamic world around them with greater confidence. Teachers are empowered to examine their own views about teaching and learning, gaining a research based perspective on commonly believed myths in the educational field. The course is designed to promote effective curriculums that enable students to become successful learners and effective contributors.
