Curriculum (in a) crisis

Paula Delaney & Matea Marcinko

In this session, we will be looking at the core principles of curriculum design in the long-term and the medium-term towards an understanding of how they can help us to be ready for designing and delivering curriculum in a post-Corona world. We argue that the curriculum principles of review and refine and focus, are a good measure for curriculum design at any time, considering how we maintain our intent whilst adapting our implementation. We then turn to thinking about our short-term planning and some of the challenges we are facing in curriculum now, and as schools reopen.
