Blackmore, P. & Kandiko, C.B. Strategic curriculum change in universities: Global trends. Routledge, Oxon, 2012. ISBN: 978-0-415-80932-0. Pages: 232. Strategic curriculum change in universities maps and explores how major universities in the UK, US, Australia, The Netherlands, South Africa, and Hong Kong are reviewing their approaches to teaching and learning through the curriculum. The book effectively combines institutional-level strategies with the underlying larger educational issues. It is based on a major study of curriculum change in over twenty internationally-minded, research-intensive universities in the above-mentioned countries. The chapters focus on a variety of topics including:
  • achieving curriculum coherence
  • assessment in curriculum change
  • the physical and virtual environment for learning, and
  • academic work and leadership.
