Diploma course in Latin America (Uruguay, August 2012)



Continuing the success of its previous courses, the third Diploma in Curriculum Design and Development in Latin America will start on 20 August 2012 at the Catholic University of Uruguay, in Montevideo. This initiative is being jointly implemented by the IBE, the Catholic University of Uruguay (UCU), and the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNESCO/OREALC).
The Diploma aims to promote training and capacity development on curricular issues with an international comparative perspective, to contribute to the achievement of equitable quality education. It is a conceptual and methodological tool for strengthening capacities for curricular analysis, review, evaluation, design and development at macro, meso and micro levels of the education system, with an emphasis on the school level. The course is designed for education policymakers, planners, curriculum developers, teacher trainers, quality assurance officers, researchers, international staff and other partners in education at the local and regional levels. It is conducted on a part-time basis, including a two-week intensive session in which participants’ attendance is required, as well as distance learning activities within a timeframe of 30 weeks. The course is based on the UNESCO-IBE’s "Training Tools for Curriculum Development: A Resource Pack" (TTCD), as well as additional resources tailored to the region, including an anthology reader of curriculum-related articles and handouts on curricular debates, policy dialogue and education reforms, inclusive education, the role of teachers and the role of assessment.
