Curriculum development models abound. Generally they suggest an iterative and cyclical pattern.

Curriculum does not happen sequentially. Decisions made at one point often need to be revisited and revised in light of later decisions. What is important is that the curriculum be coherent-- that there is congruence and a "match" among all the components.

Some find it helpful to have a visual image of the process in mind when you work with curriculum. The curriculum road map on the home page of this web site may provide such an image. When we create a curriculum, we need to be sure that decisions made in each area "fit" with all the others.

A dynamic curriculum is constantly changing and growing-- responding to feedback, assimilating new ideas, adapting to learner needs and learning contexts. These decisions are guided and informed by our belief systems, our understanding of how students learn and curriculum principles and practices. Collectively, they form the "decision screens" for the curriculum decisions that we make.
