Learning outcomes for Module 4 are:

  • To be able to discuss and critique curriculum models and theories

  • To describe and plan the process of curriculum development, and the rationale for its stages
  • To analyze the challenges and methods of curriculum implementation

Students are expected to do all of the above with a critical and reflective approach based on an appreciation of evidence and cultural context.
