This unit seeks to develop the students' knowledge of the role of curriculum in realising the purposes and possibilities of schooling. This requires a thorough understanding of the processes of curriculum design, development, implementation and evaluation and a critical awareness of the creative role of curriculum in empowering schools to respond to social change. The unit will introduce students to theoretical understandings, major debates and current constructions of curriculum, assessment and reporting in Victoria and other countries. Through a focus on Victoria this unit will equip students to develop understandings about curriculum in schools, assessment practices and reporting procedures. The unit provides opportunities to focus on curriculum and schools across global and local contexts.
