Curriculum Development & Planning in the 21st Century Conference 2023
All around the world and more especially in Africa, higher education is expanding rapidly, governments are mounting inquiries into higher education, more institutions are involved in running courses of study and more money is being spent on higher education, not least by students themselves. Higher education is ever more important to increasing numbers of people. And yet, despite the growth and debate, there is very little talk about the curriculum observed Barnett and Coate. In the new era of the 4th Industrial Revolution, high unemployment and the new demands of workplace, it is worth introspecting afresh what knowledge is most worth learning in higher education and how this knowledge might be organized in higher education programmes. This is because in higher education, curricula typically extend beyond what gets taught, to the pedagogic practices deployed to support engagement with the discipline – not just what, but how we teach, what and how we assess and how we provide feedback. These choices are informed by national guidance and frameworks, shaped by institutional culture and strategies, and enhanced through engagement with stakeholders.
