Paper Description

This paper introduces students to the nature and purpose of the curriculum in a range of educational sectors within Aotearoa New Zealand, and to theories that shape the intended and enacted curriculum. Students will reflect on their curriculum experiences and examine the policy intent of curriculum frameworks that include aims, principles and values for diverse educational settings - including indigenous and bicultural curriculum framing. Students will examine what knowledge, competencies, and skills count in curriculum structure and design. Understandings of strands/learning areas’ objectives will be applied in planning and teaching experiences.
