Program Description:

The Curriculum Studies and Teacher Development Program is a forum for systematic reflection on the substance, purposes, and practices used for bringing about learning in educational settings. Of concern are such fundamental issues as: what should be studied? Why? By whom? In what ways? And in what settings? Consideration is given to subject matter, learning, teaching, and the larger social, political, and economic contexts as well as the immediate learning instructional situation. The Curriculum Studies and Teacher Development Program also offers a wide range of research methodology courses including qualitative and quantitative research, action research, naturalistic inquiry, teacher inquiry, computer supported analysis, performed and critical ethnography, life histories and mixed methodologies.
