A school is most clearly defined by its curriculum - what students learn, how they will learn and how we will know whether they have learned. In the international school, where teachers, students and parents are in constant transition, clear, coherent curriculum is even more essential. The leadership team in an international school bears full responsibility for ensuring it is in place and effective. This course will equip participants to lead a full curriculum process, including development, implementation and monitoring.
Participants will learn and practice:
How current research about teaching and learning should influence international school curriculum design
Defining what students should learn, who should determine this and how we can ensure the ‘right’ learning intentions
Alignment of intended learning, instructional and assessment practices
Processes for getting curriculum written in your school
The structures and systems available for getting curriculum implemented
Effective curriculum monitoring processes
Essential leadership strategies impacting the entire process of developing, implementing and monitoring curriculum
