Rozemeijer, Saskia, Ed.
The aim of the regional seminar on curriculum renewal, held in Bohinj, Slovenia in April 2002 was to contribute to human resource development and capacity-building in the field of curriculum development. It is currently widely recognized that curriculum renewal is an important component in the reform and in improving the quality of education. The exchange of information at the seminar and sharing of experiences on national processes of curriculum review and reform in participating countries was framed against an analysis of contemporary trends in curriculum development based on regional and international case studies and examples of good practice.
