Triennial Program 1978-80. Curriculum Development for Australian Schools.
Curriculum Development Centre, Canberra (Australia).
Australia's Curriculum Development Centre was established by statute in 1975 in order to provide assistance at the national level to groups engaged in curriculum formation. The Centre's activities include the design, production, testing, and dissemination of educational materials and techniques; the evaluative study of school practice and organization; the provision of assistance in curriculum formation to schools and teachers; the study of the theory, practice, and effects of curriculum change; and the development of methods for involving students, parents, and the community in curriculum formation. In order to manage these activities adequately, the Centre divided its program into four subprograms: Field Services, providing ideas, information, and services to outside groups; Studies and Inquiries, incorporating research and evaluation activities; Development Areas, including projects for development of curricular materials and processes in Aboriginal education, arts education, career education, visual and verbal communications, cultural and social education, health, physical education, and recreation, international and intercultural education, science, mathematics and technology, and special education, among others; and Publications. This report, the first annual review and updating of the Centre's triennial program under a planning, programming, budgeting, and evaluation system, describes the Centre's current and planned activities and administration.
