Approaches to curriculum development in Vietnamese higher education: A case study

Phan, Ngoc Thach (2015) Approaches to curriculum development in Vietnamese higher education: A case study. Professional Doctorate thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research used a case study approach to examine curriculum understandings and the processes of curriculum development at a Vietnamese university. The study proposes a participatory model for curriculum development contextualized for Vietnamese higher education. The study found that the curriculum is understood in diverse and sometimes conflicting ways by students, academics and administrative staff, and is developed in a hierarchical manner. Hence, the participatory model incorporates recommendations for effective practices of curriculum development at different levels within Vietnamese universities.
