Assignment 1: A Statement of Personal Beliefs (Course Outcomes 1, 3, 4) Simply put, curriculum may be defined as what students/learners should know and be able to do. Therefore, curriculum is the point of departure, the hub, the heart, the foundation for consideration of practically all aspects of education and training. Imagine then that you will soon interview for a position as a curriculum leader. You know that the members of the interview team have much experience in curriculum and often discuss philosophical issues in education when they see each other. Prepare a statement of values that you may leave with them to ensure that they know fully what you think about the fundamental forces that shape curriculum and in turn are shaped by it.
