n Journal of Educational Studies - Educators' approaches to curriculum development




This study investigated educators' approaches to curriculum development. A quantitative research approach was used in a survey of a sample of 304 randomly selected participants. To this end, the Curriculum Orientation Profile (COP) was used. The findings indicated that educators differ significantly in their approaches to curriculum as the development of cognitive processes, technology, self-actualisation, social reconstruction, and academic rationalisation. The findings also indicated that teaching phase has a significant influence on educators' approach to curriculum as technology. The findings further indicated that development of cognitive processes; self-actualisation, technology and academic rationalisation are significant predictors of educators' approach to curriculum development. Suggestion for further similar research so that more light can be shed on the findings was made.
