Curriculum development

The design of an educational program that fulfills the educational goals of the institution. Involved are the selection of academic courses; determination of course content; selection of teaching materials and methods; and establishing levels of expectation for student achievement. In addition to course design, curriculum development also involves designing ancillary activities essential to fulfilling the school’s broad educational goals. These may include cultural enrichment programs, special education and such extracurricular activities as athletics, performing arts, publishing, hobbies, etc. In 1962, Professor Hilda Taba (1902–1967) published the classic work on the subject.
