EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE

The development of curriculum and instructional materials is based on educational theory and research. Individual learners and their teachers are diverse, with different backgrounds and expectations. Curriculum must incorporate key generic competencies and be appropriate to a range of learning needs and should be designed to encourage lifelong learning. As such, curriculum must serve the short and long term needs of learners. Instructional resources must be designed to help learners acquire the desired competencies and learning skills, transferring this learning to a range of applications.
