Curriculum design theories

Curriculum Design Process Overview

When a teacher engages in curriculum design, they make decisions regarding the activities students will undertake, identify the participating students, and establish the timetable they will follow (Schweitzer, 2020).

Essentially, it is a methodical and structured approach to delivering educational content to a group of students.

In its simplest terms, curriculum design is the deliberate process of organizing and planning the formal learning experience (Dodd, B.J. 2021).

curriculum design process overview summary

1. Generate a clear set of objectives and learning goals 2. Detect any limitations 3. Create a curriculum map to guide you 4. Identify instructional methods to be used 5. Identify any evaluation tools or methods necessary This plan will constantly be revisited as the material is taught and assessment data is evaluated. (Schweitzer, 2020)

subject centered curriculum

Subject-centered curriculum is focused on a core subject. Subject-centered curriculum design lets the teacher know exactly what needs to be studied and how the students need to study. Teachers are given a list of pre- determined things to teach their students. Subject-centered curriculum design is standardized. (Schweitzer, 2020)

3.There is a hierarchy to content subjects and teachers allot time based on this hierarchy.

2.Content and knowledge are important aspects of this curriculum.

1.Most popular in the educational setting.

4.Instruction has a tendency to be heavily teacher centered. (Ornstein & Hunkins, 2017)

Curriculum Design Model: Subject-Centered Summary

learner-centered curriculum

The Learner-Centered Curriculum model looks at each student as an individual. It gives children choices to guide their education. The Learner-Centered model is differentiated and highly engaging with learning opportunities such as project-based learning. The idea within the learner-centered model is to shift the focus of instruction from the instructor to the learner. (Schweitzer, 2020)

learner-centered curriculum summary

The Learner-Centered model is based on the constructivist learning theory. The students help plan their own curriculum. The goal is to develop the independence of the learner. It focuses on skills that develop independent thinkers and problem solvers. The Learner-Centered model draws upon the student’s prior knowledge and is relevant to their personal life. (Schweitzer, 2020)

problem-centered curriculum

Students are faced with real life problems and develop solutions. These problem/solution scenarios help them develop skills that become real life skills as they grow up. Problem-Centered Curriculum is a creative and innovative curriculum, however it is not always inclusive of multiple learning styles. Problem-Centered Curriculum is intended to address cultural and social issues. (Schweitzer, 2020

problem-centered curriculum summary

Problem-Centered curriculum places students in social settings similar to learner-centered designs, however they are different in the aspect that they are planned before the students get there. Subjects often go beyond academic content. There is equal emphasis on both the content and the learner in the problem-centered curriculum. Problem-Centered curriculum allows students to engage deeply with the content instead of simply memorizing the necessary material for an immediate test. (Davis, 2019)
