EDEL 650 - Curriculum Foundations and Inquiry

★ 3 (fi 6) (either term, 0-3s-0) A required course for doctoral students in the Department of Elementary Education. Engages students in advanced examination of the historical foundations of the curriculum field, contemporary issues in curriculum, and current influences on curriculum. Through readings, discussions, and assignments, course participants will examine a number of perspectives for inquiring into educational practice, situating their own practice within the wider context of the field of curriculum studies, interpreting the language of curriculum, and considering the role of teachers in mediating curriculum with their students. The epistemological, ontological, axiological, and ideological bases for the forms of curriculum theory and inquiry will be studied. Prerequisite: EDEL 561 or consent of the Department.
