EDPD 602 Curriculum Design

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Curriculum Design focuses on the process of designing curriculum from a ‘zero-sum’ starting point. The curriculum cycle and various considerations of curriculum design will be emphasized to provide participants a better understanding of the centrality of curriculum design in meeting the needs of all students. Specific focus will be placed on: (1) the concept of backwards design as illustrated by Wiggins and McTighe in Understanding by Design (2005), (2) contemporary and technological considerations for curriculum design, (3) curriculum accessibility or enhancement for students performing below or above grade level, (4) vertical articulation, (5) the role of standards in curriculum design, and (6) the inter-relatedness of curriculum, instruction, and assessment in the teaching and learning process. (Open to Educational Program Design majors only)
