About the Contemporary Curriculum Club

The Contemporary Curriculum Club is a participatory and reflective community aimed at enhancing understandings of contemporary curriculum. The club will both explore new ideas while also playing with risky ideas that influence and enhance and transform curriculum. We aim to keep the rigour in curriculum alive through discussion and practices which are often rare to find these days when conversations regarding compliance and adherence tend to be the norm. We understand that we work in a challenging and changing landscape. This, however, should not be a reason for us to become complacent in our thinking. So… do you yearn to be part of something unique which values deep learning, creates innovation to sculpture stunning ways of living reflective practice, critical reflection and recognising the power of theory in practice? Come prepared to be dazzled and challenged in this 8-part club - to investigate the bee in your curriculum bonnet!

 

Some ideas we will be exploring include:

  • The rich and complex history of curriculum and its impact on the everyday
  • What do people do all day in early childhood programs
  • Developing shared understandings of curriculum
  • Place-based theory and practice unique to the Australian context
  • The art of critique as a cornerstone of curriculum
  • Children's rights and curriculum
  • Documentation as a process of 'thinking with'
  • A contemporary and critical understanding of the cycle of planning

 

Be prepared to learn new knowledge, shift your practice and share what you know. To recognise how you learn, to be challenged and befriend this to support others to think and work with a similar mindset but with different perspectives. To dream big and revolutionise what curriculum is and how it operates in the everyday.
