We are very pleased to welcome the Olin College of Engineering, a highly innovative academic institution, to the Center for Curriculum Redesign. President Richard Miller stated: “… the need for a fresh conceptualization of education is urgent. This may be the most pressing Grand Challenge of our age.”
Finland, one of the early partners of the CCR, is also one of the top PISA performers in its many iterations. Its curriculum can be found at: http://www.oph.fi/english/sources_of_information/core_curricula_and_qualification_requirements/basic_education
We also recommend this paper The Finnish National Core Curriculum_Vitikka et al. 2011 to understand the process through which Finland’s curriculum operates.
We are very pleased to announce that the Finnish Board of Education has joined the CCR. In his support letter, Timo Lankinen, Director General, stated: “…what is essential in curriculum necessitates a bold reconsideration of knowledge and learning, contents, and pedagogical practices”.
The Center for Curriculum Redesign (CCR) is pleased to announce that the Fondation Henri Moser (Geneva, Switzerland) has renewed its commitment to the cause of, and approach to, global curriculum redesign as championed by the CCR.
