Hopmann, Stefan (2015)
Publisher: Co-Action Publishing
Journal: Nordic Journal of Studies in Educational Policy
Languages: English
Types: Article
From a personal perspective, the article focuses on the points of contact between Didaktik and curriculum theory within a continental European perspective, where Didaktik is more commonly used than curriculum for describing the issues under scrutiny. By highlighting these points of contact between a continental European description of Didaktik and an Anglo-American description in curriculum, it also looks into the future, discussing some probable developments within education.Keywords: didactics; curriculum; history; comparative educationCitation: NordSTEP 2015, 1: 27007 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/nstep.v1.27007
