Having been involved recently in early childhood curriculum development in Tanzania, I realise (i) many curriculum developers have not had training, particularly in developing countries and (ii) its importance is underestimated as it can constrain how a teacher teaches and how children learn.
Training Tools: Curriculum Development
IBE – UNESCO
The International Bureau of Education (IBE-UNESCO) has the pleasure of announcing the launch of the series Training Tools for Curriculum Development. This new series aims to provide technical assistance and strengthen leadership for education and curriculum reforms. The series consists of a variety of training materials including Resource Packs and Thematic Modules.
By providing comprehensive guidance on current and critical issues, the training tools are used to train and further develop existing capacities of national policy makers, curriculum specialists and developers, assessment experts, teacher educators, teachers, school leaders, supervisors and district level administrators.
Among other initiatives, the project developed a training tool, ‘A Resource Pack for Gender-Responsive STEM Education’. Its overarching aim is to share a broader understanding of the theory and practice of gender-responsive STEM education, in order to support its effective development at the policy, school, classroom and community levels.
The Training Tools for Curriculum Development are available in English, French, and Spanish.
