Curriculum Development

The process of designing the national, local or school curriculum is known as curriculum development. In order to produce a quality curriculum, this process should be planned and systematic. It should value the input of stakeholders and also cater for sustainability and long-term impact. In contemporary educational practice curriculum development is seen as a comprehensive cycle of development, implementation, evaluation, and revision to ensure that the curriculum is up-to-date and relevant.
