EDPD 8052 - Evaluating Curriculum to Promote Positive Social Change♦


(5 cr.) Evaluating and designing curriculum to promote positive social change requires a broad understanding of the philosophy, concerns, data, and current practices within the entire school environment. In this course, education professionals examine what it means to provide a transformative experience for students while creating conditions that facilitate deep learning. Education professionals will review and evaluate various curriculum approaches; examine the alignment of content standards; and consider the role of collaboration, community building, and power sharing to foster learner autonomy and meet the needs of an ever-increasing diverse student population. Through authentic case-study scenarios, education professionals are provided with opportunities to see the impact of curriculum design in practice. The application of a learner-centered approach to existing practice, as well as any recommendations and modifications to curriculum, learning spaces and technology, assessment, and the delivery of instruction will be applied to more effectively accommodate multiple learning needs and promote positive social change.
