Module Synopsis
This course introduces participants to basic concepts, principles and skills in the fields of curriculum and assessment and their relations to Hong Kong’s educational system, as well as international trends. It offers participants a spiral path of developing professional knowledge and skills in educating students in the subject and non-subject specific contexts. Participants are guided to derive practical implications of the fundamental theories of curriculum and assessment for classroom practice. By examining school curriculum and assessment policies in relation to local school contexts, participants are facilitated to reflect on their own role as prospective teachers, and as a collaborator in a multi-disciplinary school system. Participants are therefore enabled to lay a broad foundation for understanding the complexity of curriculum and assessment issues across different subject fields and all education sectors (kindergarten, primary, and secondary education). New developments in the fields of curriculum and assessment in Hong Kong and international education settings will be highlighted.
