Learning comes first: shifting the focus from examining to the curriculum
Critics say that the current focus on assessment in Britain means that the public debate is overlooking how schools are engaging young people and preparing them for the future. Our concerns over the narrowness of the debate are leading us to investigate the issues in greater depth.
We are hosting an event to debate the key issues and to examine what a good programme of learning should look like. There is ample evidence that a curriculum is at the heart of the learning experience a school offers its learners, and at the heart of the mission and vision of the school. Good curricula develop learners' understanding, knowledge and skills. So what should a good curriculum – or to put it another way, a good education – look like?
The event will bring together practitioners, researchers, policy makers and those with an interest in the field.
