Design of Curriculum Development Centres. Educational Building Report 15.
Periodic adaptations of the curriculum to new needs with continuous analysis of results and feedback are some of the functions performed in many Asian countries by an institution called a Curriculum Development Centre (CDC). The first part of the study analyzes the function of a CDC, examines in general terms what sort of facilities are needed, taking into account the links existing between a CDC and other educational institutions, and illustrates with diagrams the general structure of a CDC in terms of its functional components and the grouping of facilities in it. The range of variations of a CDC regarding the staff and the construction area provided is shown through three models. The second part of the study suggests a typology of spaces designed to meet the basic needs of a CDC and applies it to the various sectors. The chapters correspond to the various functional groups. Each includes a detailed breakdown of the staff and construction area (three models) as well as a development of the proposed typology (sketch plans). A sketch master plan is given at the end of the second part. Information relating to staff and facilities of existing CDCs is given in the conclusion. (Author/MLF)
