Curriculum design is the planning period when instructors organize the instructional units for their course. Curriculum design involves planning activities, readings, lessons, and assessments that achieve educational goals.
Curriculum design can be segmented into three forms. These include subject-centered design, learner-centered design and problem-centered design. Subject-centered design focuses on a specific discipline while learner-centered design focuses on students’ own interests and goals. Problem-centered design focuses on specific issues and how to source solutions.
