Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy

The aim of the Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy (CAP) SIG is to encourage and support research and other scholarly activity in the inter-related areas of curriculum, assessment and pedagogy across the 4 nations of the UK and internationally. One of the aspirations of the SIG is to re-ignite curriculum studies as a broad field. Examples of such work include attention to the important inter-relationship between these three ‘message systems’, for example the growing influence of assessment on curricula internationally, and attempts by governments and their agencies to prescribe pedagogy, in addition to curriculum, and assessment. Further examples of the work that the SIG encourages are:

  • historical, theoretical and ideological influences on CAP;
  • the impact of globalisation, policy borrowing, and nation state control;
  • teacher and pupil agency;
  • action research and practice;
  • alternative visions of curriculum, assessment and pedagogy for the 21st century.

The intention is to hold seminars, workshops and other regular meetings in order to:

  • share knowledge;
  • plan presentations;
  • develop networks to support publications and research proposals; and
  • engage where possible with relevant policy and practitioner communities.
