Curricular Change

Curriculum change occurs due to an internal analysis of curricula and identification of areas for improvement or in response to external pressures such as changes in technology and societal influences.

Minor changes may involve re-arrangement of subject content, learning activities, and the addition of topics or methods in the curriculum.

Major change involves an overhaul of the existing curriculum. It may entail a complete reorganization of the conceptual design of the curriculum, changes in structure, content, methods and approaches.
