Kenya Inst. of Education, Nairobi.; Nairobi Univ. (Kenya).; German Agency for Technical Co-Operation, Nairobi (Kenya).
This manual provides background information, program organization descriptions, and guidelines for preparing and reporting projects undertaken by students enrolled for the postgraduate diploma in curriculum development at the University of Nairobi, under the direction of the African Curriculum Organization (ACO). The ACO was established in 1976 by African ministers of education to stimulate and strengthen research and evaluation in curriculum development in African countries, and to promote effective cooperation among curriculum centers. The major objectives of the training course are: (1) to train participants in techniques of curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation; (2) to develop in participants an awareness of the relationship between education and social change; and (3) to inculcate in participants the habit of self-development through continuous self-education. The course is in three phases, each lasting three months: correspondence study, residential coursework in Nairobi, and field work. The course outline is given, including entry requirements, course structure and content, and examination regulations. Staffing and administration requirements are reviewed. (FG)
