Ten clues for rethinking curriculum



In-Progress Reflection No.42 on Current and Critical Issues in Curriculum Learning and Assessment:

By Renato Opertti

This discussion document highlights the urgency of rethinking curriculum in light of reinforcing the commitments of the Education 2030 Agenda on learning, disruptive systemic worldwide societal changes, and crucially, the profound transformation of education and education systems post Covid-19. Curriculum is always at the core of giving effect to social aspirations and ideals on the why, what, how, when, and where of teaching, learning, and assessing. We propose a series of 10 interconnected clues to deepen on the systemic and holistic understanding of curriculum as contributing to lay foundations for a better, sustainable and fair future. These clues are: understanding the new generations; combatting factors related to vulnerability; reinforcing understanding between school and families; deepening glo-local education; enhancing the focus on the person; promoting synergies among values; valuing diversity; focusing on education that enhances freedom; moving toward hybrid modes of education; and inspiring affection for educators.
