In this mini episode, Dr Richard Pountney (Sheffield Hallam University) discusses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the curriculum. He addresses this topic under three headings: the effects of the pandemic; the structures involved; and the responses being made. His overriding question is ‘Who owns the curriculum now?’

The BERA Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy (CAP) SIG aims 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.
