Curriculum in a Changing World Book

The British Educational Research Association (BERA) presents a collection of 50 think pieces showcasing perspectives on curriculum theory and practice. Written by eminent curriculum makers and innovators working across the UK and beyond, the contributions share insights in the study and practical implementation of curriculum in schools, colleges, universities and other educational settings.

Curriculum in a Changing World explores historical and contemporary approaches to curriculum design, highlighting the evolution from knowledge-focused curricula to competency-based frameworks. Providing valuable insights for all educators, policymakers and researchers, the think pieces delve into government policy; issues of equality, diversity and inclusion; school-based innovations; and teacher education. Future directions for curriculum are considered in the context of seismic shifts in society, from global ecological concerns to a digital revolution. The book celebrates the rich landscape of curriculum innovation and research in the four UK nations and globally, and builds on an illustrious heritage, including the seminal tradition of research and development founded by Lawrence Stenhouse.

Published to mark BERA’s 50th anniversary, this unique volume is edited by the steering group of the British Curriculum Forum, a vibrant and active network united by a deeply held interest in the study of theoretical, innovative and practical elements of curriculum.
