About the Course
This 4-week course provides a basic introduction to the principles, conceptual underpinnings, and creative design of curricula relevant to transformative education, specially GCED in both formal and non-formal contexts. Participants of the course will explore practical ideas for appropriate, effective and creative teaching of GCED-related curricula for all levels of formal schooling, non-formal peace education programmes of government and nongovernment agencies and community organizations. The goal of this course is to provide teachers/participants with the theoretical framework for analyzing, critiquing, and investigating curriculum so that they will be able to design GCED curriculum responsive to their own contexts.
|Session 1:||Curriculum Theory, Development, and Design|
|Session 2:||Designing a Curriculum|
|Session 3:||Writing Learning Objectives/Outcomes and Evaluation Techniques|
|Session 4:||Curriculum Innovations|
The course will consist of four “classroom” weeks. The course will open with a lecture or powerpoint presentation or video clips followed by Forum discussions. Participants are expected to check the course site at the beginning of every course week to be aware of the requirements for the week.
