Teaching-Learning Issues. Curriculum Innovation: Three Dimensions.
Harris, John; Keller, Steve
While nothing new is expected and anything significant seems too dangerous, it is still necessary to examine critical problems in the field of curriculum and innovation. The problems and prospects of curriculum may be grouped according to management, structure, and purpose. Information together with an institutional willingness to get the greatest educational benefits from its budget can result in major outcomes in educational management. If the basic restructuring of instructional and credit systems is to be effective and maintained, the explicit degree goals and standards must be established along with new assessment procedures for determining the individual attainment of these standards. Just at the time we may perceive the need to instill certain attitudes and values in people, we appear to have no transcendent or common commitments. Liberal education must deal with values in a culture with little consensus, and with all the conditions that facilitate further atomization. (Author/KE)
