Things to consider when reforming your school’s curriculum

March 13, 2018

“Any college leader considering a curriculum change for his or her institution has a lot of questions to ask and answer,” writes Alexandra Logue. The author notes that one must determine the goals of curriculum reform before moving forward. Once these are defined, the author adds, a school must gather the best possible data to inform its curriculum decisions. Such data is not always available inside the school, Logue adds, but is obtainable only by going to third parties in order to learn more about the efforts being undertaken at similar schools, and whether these efforts have resulted in identifiable success. Once such data is accessed, Logue concludes, “these administrators will be in a better position to make decisions about when and how to revise the curriculum, and that can only benefit students.” Chronicle of Higher Education
