Curriculum Development in Further Education. A Collection of Papers for In-Service Development Groups. Third Edition.
Russell, John, Ed.; Latcham, Jack, Ed.
The papers in this collection were originally developed for use in Further Education Staff College (England) conferences for senior staff in further education establishments. (Further education is similar to American adult education.) The process of curriculum development in further education is viewed as operating at levels associated with the course, the subject, and the lesson. Within the levels are five skill areas: (1) establishing overall aims, (2) writing specific objectives, (3) selecting learning situations, (4) selecting patterns of assessment, and (5) student selection. Topics covered in these papers, in addition to the five skill areas, include management of curriculum development, behavioral objectives, curriculum evaluation, writing and evaluation of multiple-choice items, and training of college staff in curriculum development. Also provided are an annotated bibliography on curriculum development and two versions of a workbook on writing learning objectives, one directed towards technical subjects and the other to business courses.
