Factors that Impede Curriculum Change: A Preliminary Report
Buchanan, Michael T.
British Journal of Religious Education, v28 n1 p51-63 Jan 2006
The management of curriculum change in religious education is of interest to all who are concerned with a continuing pursuit of excellence in this curriculum area. Utilising a grounded theory approach, this paper describes some findings concerning the management of curriculum change in the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, Australia. It reports the perspective of religious education coordinators, who were responsible for managing a major change in the religious education curriculum in Catholic secondary schools. Emanating from a broader on-going study, the report focuses on factors that the religious education coordinators felt impeded curriculum change.
