Considering curricula

The Future of Education and Skills 2030 also focuses on curricula – both redesigning and implementing curricula to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Through an international curriculum analysis, participating countries reflect on their own practices and learn from the experiences of others.

International curriculum analysis

A report on curriculum redesign, scheduled for publication in 2019-20, will address six common policy issues:

1. Curriculum overload

2. Managing the time lag between today's curriculum and future needs

3. Ensuring equity through curriculum innovations

4. Managing curriculum flexibility and autonomy

5. Embedding values into the curriculum

6. Designing/planning for effective implementation

The report will use existing research, results from the Policy Questionnaire on Curriculum Redesign (PQC) and the Curriculum Content Mapping (CCM) document analysis.

Subject-specific analysis

Mathematics Curriculum Document Analysis (MCDA)

This project investigates the extent to which countries have incorporated 21st-century skills, such as creativity, digital literacy and critical thinking, into their mathematics curricula.

Taking stock of Physical Education/Health Education (PEHE)

This project examines the state of physical education and health education policies and practices in a variety of countries.

Phase II: Curriculum implementation

How can countries best implement a future-oriented, redesigned curriculum, ensuring the quality of students' learning and well-being?

In this phase, which focuses on teachers, the project will develop a teaching framework and identify the competencies - including knowledge, skills, attitudes and values - essential for teachers to acquire.
