The term „curriculum“ comes from the Latin word „currere“ which means to run, run the race, race, racecourse. In the field of learning and education, the word curriculum means a learning flow and order, a series of obstacles and hurdles (subjects) in learning to be overcome in a specific time.
A program or curriculum is an activity plan to achieve the defined goals and expected learning results. In fact, it is a document or a set of documents for implementing a core idea (vision) and strategy of an organized learning process.
To transfer basic knowledge and skills in the process of developing such a document, with all the „obstacles“ and „hurdles“, DVV International organized a seminar on the topic „Basics of developing adult education curricula“ for adult education providers from Tuzla Canton.
After the held seminar, the participants were now able to explain the principles of adult learning and phases in the development of an adult education curriculum, understand the work analysis as a need in developing vocational education curricula, find inputs for curricula development and understand the development of modules- and outcome-based curricula, analyze the existing practice in the curricula development and structure a curriculum with required elements.
The seminar was held on the 9th and 10th of March in Tuzla by Ms. Jelena Jakovljević, Program Director at the Klett EDU Training Center.
