Development of Future Curriculum via Futures Studies
Siraj, Saedah; Abdullah, Muhammad Ridhuan Tony Lim
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 2 p226-236 2011
Observation on best future choices is not something that happens by chance; in fact, it should be carried out through careful planning driven by research. Therefore, observation on future curriculum would also involve in-depth research on future possibilities and their impact. Policy makers and curriculum developers of institutions or even the country should plan ahead not only for 50 years to come but beyond that. Research on the future would provide essential data in shaping the present generation as well as the future generation. Research oriented from future curriculum should be developed based on research findings on the future, including research on trends, events and their respective impact on the targeted learners. Therefore, the researchers will also discuss the aims, definition, basics and importance of future curriculum. The paper also includes discussion about future curriculum for engineering education.
