T HE CURRICULUM PROCESS The development of a curriculum involves the developer in decisions about the nature and appropriateness of the substantive elements, e.g. the: outcomes content method assessment strategies These decisions are made in relation to the context in which the curriculum will operate.
A CONTINUUM OF CURRICULUM MODELS Rational/objectives models: Ralph Tyler Hilda Taba
Tyler's Objective Model (also called the Rational Model) This model takes curriculum as a means of aiming toward an educational objective. Therefore, this model is also called means–objective model.
E.g. With the K to 12 Health curriculum, a learner should be able to achieve, sustain and promote lifelong and wellness. The program’s rich and challenging learning experiences promote the development of the macro skills of practicing desirable health habits.
It answers the following questions: What is the object of education ? What teaching experience that we have to provide in order to achieve educational object? How to effectively organize the educational experience ? How can we know whether these objects have achieved? (How to evaluate? )
The Objectives Model:
Cons of the Tyler Model The objective has a behavioural orientation. Behavioural objectives have many advantages if applied to curriculum design, but they have some limitations on execution.
For example, they do not apply to all subjects or the design of a subject’s content. Unacceptable verbs are as follow: to know, to understand, to really understand, to appreciate, to fully appreciate, to grasp the significance of, to enjoy, to believe and to have faith in.
Building behavioural objectives takes a very long time and a very tedious process.
Besides, this model narrows the span of knowledge and skills which the students must actually be familiar with.
Pros of the Tyler Model Notable for being the 1st model of objectives for teaching. Examples of the acceptable verbs are: (Students will be able) to write, to recite, to identify, to differentiate, to solve, to construct, to list, to compare and to contrast, etc
A CONTINUUM OF CURRICULUM MODELS Cyclical models: Wheeler Nichols
What is cyclic model of curriculum? Cyclical Model includes elements from both the rational and dynamic models ; But is basically an extension of the rational models which are essentially logical and sequential in approach.
In the Cyclical Models, curriculum is a continuous cycle responding to the changes within education where any new information or practice will bring changes.
Cyclical models undertake situational analysis whereby the context or situation in which curriculum decisions are to be taken is thoroughly studied. This helps curriculum developers take correct decisions thus encouraging active participation of staffs in school based curriculum.
cyclic model of curriculum
Strengths of Cyclical Model Provide logical sequence ; Provide baseline data for objectives ; Able to cope with changing circumstances ; Provide flexibility (and relevant to school situations and more appropriate to cur dev by teachers)
Weaknesses of cyclical model It is difficult to locate ; It is not different from objective model since it adopts logical sequence; It takes time to undertake an effective situational analysis
A CONTINUUM OF CURRICULUM MODELS Dynamic/interaction models : Walker Skilbeck
Strengths of dynamic model Curriculum developer can begin with any of the elements; The model allows cur developer to change the order of planning (to move to and fro amongst the cur elements) The model offers flexibility
Weaknesses of dynamic model The model does not necessarily specify objectives ; The model offers so little direction ; The cur developers need a lot of time to determine the beginning stage in cur dev

“ Curriculum Development” A dynamic Process Some basic facts As teachers we are not free to teach any topic we choose, Rather: We are guided by national, local and/or institutional standards that specify what students should know and be able to do;
These standards provide framework to help us identify teaching and learning priorities and guide our design of curriculum and assessment
Shift of paradigm from focusing on teaching to focusing on Learning ; “if your students are not learning, you are not teaching” Curriculum is used as a “means” to an “end”
Curriculum Development Is a systematic, logical and dynamic process for achieving organized learning ; It allows educators to: Articulate characteristics of: Graduates (prior knowledge, experience, professional goals, expectations); Curriculum design; Content; Teaching Method; Assessment of student’s achievement; and Program Evaluation
W HY SHOULD WE CONSIDER VARIOUS MODELS ? To keep the educational system up-to-date with prevailing advancements in various subjects; To reduce the gap between actual output and required output; To adopt blended mode of education; To offer more meaningful education; To offer international standard so that credit transfers, student, faculty exchange program can take place.

According to Duncan McCallum, the deputy academic secretary at the University of Cambridge, “A good curriculum should engage and challenge the student”. Videos\Reflecting on the Curriculum A Digital Story.avi
