The Curriculum Guide: The Conceptual Framework for Further Education.
Adult, Community, and Further Education Board, Melbourne (Australia).
Written for managers and teachers working in further education (especially in Australia), this guide was designed to accompany "Transforming Lives, Transforming Communities: A Conceptual Framework for Further Education" and explains what the conceptual framework for further education is (although it does not assume that the reader has read "Transforming Lives"). The guide presents examples and case studies of how the framework has been used in workshops for professional development and in documenting curriculum. It also presents responses to the framework in the form of teachers' voices and testimonies. A summary of the key points from "Transforming Lives" is made throughout the guide, in order to facilitate understanding of the curriculum. The guide shows how teachers and administrators can use the curriculum for individual or group planning, writing accredited and non-accredited curriculum documents, and developing a coherent and integrated learning program. The five sections of the guide and their authors are as follows: (1) "A Conceptual Framework for Further Education Curriculum" (Clara Block); (2) "Using the Conceptual Framework for Further Education in Teaching" (Robyn Hodge, Merilyn Hickson); (3) "Using the Framework To Document Curriculum" (Delia Bradshaw); (4) "Writing Curriculum for Accreditation Using the Framework" (Jan Hagston); and (5) The Conceptual Framework and Program Coordination" (Merilyn Hickson).
