IBE-UNESCO Diploma in Curriculum Design and Development
The IBE-UNESCO Diploma in Curriculum Design and Development runs its 10th consecutive edition partnered with the UNESCO Division of Teaching, Learning and Content, the Open University of Tanzania (OUT), the Catholic University of Uruguay (UCU), and with the support of the Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Distinguished Academic Performance.
On 31 August 2015, the 6th edition in Latin America and the Caribbean will kick off. Four editions have been implemented so far in Africa.
The accredited diploma course is a one-year programme with the aim of strengthening countries capacities – mainly targeting policy makers, curriculum developers and specialists, supervisors, principals, teacher trainers and quality assurance officers - to design, develop and assess quality curricula for all.
The training is grounded on a personalized blended learning model consisting of 10 days face-to-face and 30 weeks on-line, supported by tutors. The core training materials - the IBE Curriculum Resource Pack and the series of thematic modules on current and critical curriculum issues - share cutting edge knowledge on curriculum trends, issues and practices from an international comparative perspective.
Participants have the opportunity to reflect upon their contexts and exchange with colleagues from numerous countries.
