Curriculum managers constantly need to be looking for new and more effective approaches to improving teaching and learning (T&L) in their school. This website aims to help you do just that by giving you access to a range of curriculum projects aimed at pioneering new ways to manage and deliver teaching and learning.
The centre’s main areas of interest include science, maths, design and technology, and citizenship, as well as the creative use of ICT in teaching and learning within these fields.
The curriculum projects are collated in the ‘curriculum issues’ section. This effectively provides running ‘diaries’ reporting on current work and thinking to draw your attention to innovative T&L work being done by others. These are then organised into five categories to facilitate easier access to topics of particular interest to you: design and technology, science, citizenship and maths. The fifth category ‘general issues’ features any ideas or issues not related to any particular subject.
The information on offer ranges from articles in the press and new policy reforms, to overviews of relevant education seminars and conferences, and links to publications that the site believes will be of interest to visitors.
Effectively, the site aims to be a conduit to a mass of information that is out there in various sectors of education, where the originators are working to develop and introduce bigger, better and more innovative approaches to teaching and learning. There is no commentary from the centre on the material flagged up, just a brief summary and a weblink to take you there directly.
From ‘the future of learning with digital technologies’ and ‘personalised learning: fad or fashion?’ to ‘mapping the future of assessment’ and ‘a review of learning citizenship’, the range and scope of the curriculum topics under discussion is wide, ensuring that this site has something of interest to every curriculum manager out there wanting to add a new spark and sense of purpose to the teaching and learning approaches used in their school.
