United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
This guide was developed as a cooperative initiative by UNESCO member countries to provide information about the process of development and adaptation of a flexible, competency-based curriculum, especially in vocational education. The guidebook outlines an exemplar process of education organized in 11 stages of design and development based on educational research and practice. The stages include the following: (1) identify need for curriculum; (2) identify client group and context; (3) prepare data; (4) conduct job analysis, using a process such as DACUM (Developing a Curriculum); (5) task analysis; (6) assessment planning; (7) content; (8) instructional planning; (9) preparation for implementation; (10) preparation of curriculum documents; and (11) testing and validating the curriculum. The guide also describes the process of adaptation of the curriculum and resources and problems in curriculum development. (Contains a glossary which defines 27 terms.) (KC)
