A new national curriculum in the Netherlands.
Teachers in the lead. That is the philosophy behind the latest curriculum reform in the Netherlands. A team of teachers of both primary and secondary education is involved and the teachers are supported by the Netherlands institute for curriculum development. In this workshop we will reflect on this process, explain possible approaches and discuss the difference with the situation in the United Kingdom. We will discuss pros and cons of the Dutch approach. Leading design principles for the new curriculum are: being future-proof, more coherence between different disciplines and a better learning progression from primary to secondary education. The approach is inspired by the reform process in British Columbia (https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/).
