Our curriculum is who we are. It reflects the diversity of the disciplines that make up our college community, the myriad pedagogical philosophies we bring to the classroom each day, and the strengths of our education and training. Faculty were vested with the primary responsibility for the development of new courses and programs and the revision of existing courses and programs. An effective curriculum provides teachers, students, administrators and community stakeholders with a measurable plan and structure for delivering a quality education. The curriculum identifies the learning outcomes, standards and core competencies that students must demonstrate before advancing to the next level.
Teachers play a key role in developing, implementing, assessing and modifying the curriculum. An evidenced-based curriculum acts as a road map for teachers and students to follow on the path to academic success. We have also a curriculum here in the Philippines that was introduced by the Commission on Higher Education. Basic education in the Philippines is free and compulsory at the elementary level only. The basic education system in the Philippines is composed of six years of elementary and four years of secondary education for a total of ten years. Compared to many countries, this is a relatively short period of time. Filipinos complete their basic education at the age of 16 or 17 years.
They then proceed to institutions of higher learning to obtain a post-secondary vocational/technical institution degree or a certificate. The Philippine government sector in education trying their best making good curriculum.
