Curriculum Design

How should teachers design their courses with the learner in mind? Is it possible to develop a curriculum that concentrates on the essential competencies of the 21st century? Personality differentiation has been effectively used as a platform to analyze and improve course and curriculum design for over 50 years.

Curriculum Design Services OINOS assists teachers and schools to develop curriculum, courses, and assessments that enable all students to gain knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for learning.  By using a Type-based curriculum design framework of differentiated learning, OINOS provides the necessary guidance for designing rich supports for learning that advance the five competencies outlined by the National Partnership for the 21st Century Organization, namely: adaptability, self-direction, cross-cultural skills, productivity, and leadership.

CANA Curriculum Design Model OINOS provides its own unique context-driven pedagogical model of religious education that is based on the account of Jesus’ first miracle. The six C’s of the CANA Curriculum Design Model provide interrelated catechetical, affective and noetic resources for the teaching/learning process.

  • Catechist
