June disappeared very quickly. However, I did take some time out for a reunion in the UK and had a few days in France and Spain whilst I was in the area. Very pleasant indeed.
Now it’s back to the grindstone.
I am always interested in curriculum development and the various ways in which educators put them together.Having spent much of this year and some of last contributing to the development of competency based curricula(CBC) for a Saudi institution, I have noticed an increase in the attention being paid to the creation of CBC for degree level courses. Good move, although it does have its challenges. Read the first article in this month’s posting and draw your own conclusions.
