Beyond the Technical: Interpreting a Fulfilling Curriculum
Lucey, Thomas A.; Lorsbach, Anthony W.
Educational Forum, v77 n2 p176-191 2013
The authors observe that the nature of knowledge is multidimensional, and that current efforts to shape curriculum are guided by patterns of cognitive interests. Building from an example related to teacher education, they argue that higher education experiences represent a clash between freedom and conformance that relates to these curricular interpretations. They discuss the impact of these ideas on teacher education curricula and posit a curriculum model that emphasizes depth and connectedness at all levels, calling for a reconceptualization of curriculum to bring about a more fulfilling learning process. (Contains 2 tables.)
