Designing and Evaluating Higher Education Curricula. AAHE-ERIC/Higher Education Research Report No. 8.
Wood, Lynn; Davis, Barbara Gross
The literature pertaining to the processes and methods of curriculum design and evaluation in higher education is widely scattered and not in the form most useful to those designing curriculum. This monograph identifies many of these resources and discusses them in terms of their practical use. Case studies are used to illustrate the use of the techniques in higher education. In some sections, checklists are provided for use by groups of faculty members assessing the need for a new or revised curriculum or for designing, implementing, and evaluating a new curriculum. Throughout, the interactive, interrelated nature of the design and evaluation processes is stressed, showing that each process implies or anticipates another when approached systematically.
