The future of knowledge and the curriculum | Research for the Real World

Dr Jennie Golding joins the podcast to discuss how her experiences in mathematics education informs views on the ways the curriculum may change over time.

Dr Rob Webster hears from Dr Golding about the book series she has co-edited, “What Should Schools Teach? Disciplines, subjects and the pursuit of truth”, part of the “Knowledge and the Curriculum” series published by UCL Press.

Using mathematics as a reference point, Dr Golding points to how thinking around knowledge points to its complementarity of different areas of the curriculum.

The pair also discuss to what extent the features of a school curriculum are independent of time and context and the challenges it presents for teaching and learning in the future.
