Event description


Many schools are currently in the process of evaluating and re-designing their curriculum. In this one day course, Chris will guide you through three stages of curriculum design: intent, implementation and impact.

- building ‘cultural capital’
- mapping breadth study
- creating a curriculum progression model
- articulating curriculum design rationale
- visualising end points

- using research from the learning sciences to guide implementation decisions
- using subject specific pedagogy (content pedagogical knowledge)
- the role of subject leaders (or equivalent)

- assessment methodologies
- how to monitor attainment without flight paths, predicted grades or point scores

Please note that this event will be seminar based, however, there will be interactive, participative sessions throughout the day as part of the learning experience.
