|SECTION C - STEPS FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT|
Instructional planning is the process of preparing for the delivery of the subject areas or modules. Effort should be made to sequence topics logically, to determine the relationship between theory and practice, and to identify suitable learning resources. The teacher needs to make all these preparations including plans for each lesson and, where appropriate, job sheets for learning delivery.
Flexibility in the way in which learners can participate in courses is an important component of TVE. The curriculum which is prepared should not impede access to learning. As part of the course development provision should be made for flexible learning opportunities.
Ways in which learning will be supported and assisted should also be identified to assist all participants complete the course - eg bridging courses.

¨ audio visual presentation
¨ print based
¨ non-print/electronic media including internet
¨ video conference
