Democratization and Curriculum Renewal: An Exploratory Interdisciplinary Framework for Cooperative Educational Planning.
Macagnoni, Virginia M.
The overall purpose of this paper is the presentation of eight processes as an exploratory interdisciplinary framework for cooperative educational planning directed toward democratization and curriculum renewal. The projected framework is intended as a heuristic device to stimulate curriculum and other leadership "actors" (Duncan and Frymier, 1967) as they engage in the design of planning activities. The intention is to synthesize a form from elements that have not been previously connected, but that are suggested in this paper. The thinking is addressed toward curriculum development in preparation programs in institutions of higher education that prepare curriculum actors for leadership positions in public education and for teaching positions in higher education. The problem is that of identifying and clarifying processes that seem to have potential for (1) confronting present day educational dilemmas, such as the calls for democratization and curriculum renewal; and (2) serving as a foundation for further curriculum development within institutions of higher education.
