Curriculum design for the twenty-first century

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Changing student profiles, the pervasive influence of technologies and the pressure to produce work-ready graduates with more than discipline knowledge are three consistent themes giving rise to new curriculum models in the twenty-first century. The new approaches are both exciting and challenging—exciting because they offer new and enhanced opportunities for students to learn and challenging because they are charting new territory which has implications for institutional infrastructure, learning, and teaching. In this chapter we explore the imperatives for change and set the context for the theoretical models, curriculum designs, and innovations presented by the contributing authors.
