Meanings behind curriculum development in higher education

01.11.2011 | Journal article by Marita Mäkinen and Johanna Annala, University of Tampere, Prime 4 (2), 9-24.

The PRHE conference was held in October 2010, and hosted by the Centre for Learning and Teaching at Liverpool Hope University. The theme of the conference was research-teaching linkages to enhance student learning.

The conference attracted 74 abstracts of which 60 were finally accepted as conference papers after review by two independent reviewers. Nine of these conference papers have now been written up as formal journal articles and accepted for this special issue of PRIME.

In their article Marita Mäkinen and Johanna Annala state that understanding curriculum development is ambiguous within the academic communities. The article reports on a study of the various meanings the academics give to the curriculum development in contemporary higher education. The findings propose a model of interconnected curriculum that can be useful when conceptualising curriculum and creating proactive curricular culture towards the nexus of research, teaching and learning in higher education.
