Curriculum Development

CRDG began as a research center that sought to improve educational practice by creating discipline-based curricula that would be used as the basis of a liberal education for all students. This foundational philosophy was based on the ideas of Arthur R. King, Jr. and John A. Brownell described in their seminal work Curriculum and the Disciplines of Knowledge. While our work has evolved as the educational environment has changed, we are proud to have maintained our focus on discipline-based curricula. In this section we describe the curriculum development projects in progress in 2012.
