School-Based Curriculum Development: Reflections from International Experiences and Researches
This paper explores the definition of the concept School-based Curriculum Development (SBCD). The nature of this kind of curriculum development strategy should bring about a redistribution of power and resources within the education system. The different combinations of the multi-definitions of the two dimensions school-based and curriculum development offer a variety of possible nature of the concept. The reasons, conditions, constraints and relevant researches of this trend of curriculum development will be highlighted in the latter part of this paper. Based on the analysis of this paper, it is hoped that we might have a better picture of the nature and future development of the SBCD Project Scheme just started in Hong Kong.
