Default Stirling University research finds new curriculum 'causing anxiety'


The new Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) is continuing to cause "anxiety" among teachers, according to research by academics at Stirling University.

Their report suggested teachers broadly supported the principles of the flagship curriculum.

But many were struggling to translate the new ideas into practice, it found.

Many teachers also reported tensions between the open ways of working advocated within CfE, and a continued emphasis on accountability driven by pressures to raise attainment.

They suggested there had been insufficient time allocated in many schools for the sorts of high-quality teacher dialogue required to make sense of what are complex and often novel concepts around teaching and learning.
Anyone surprised?

When I saw the title I thought - at last someone is thinking of the children here!

Doh! I should have known it would be all about the teachers! But if the teachers are anxious, for whatever reason, then that is going to be transmitted to the children as well
