Abstract

Design and Technology in industry and society has changed in the past decade
and school curriculum needs to change to account for new approaches. A
major reason for school curriculum change is the integration of a number of
different subject areas under the one title — Technology — requiring curriculum
review and renewal in Design and Technology education. Curriculum
development is important in adapting to changes in the wider society. There
was a need to develop a curriculum that responded to changing societal needs
and that provided students with a comprehensive understanding of design and
technology that focused on values in the design decision making-process,
reflecting a range of human processes, physical products, environmental
ecosystems and industry.
The purpose of the study was to design, develop, implement and evaluate a
teaching/learning model in design and technology education, for use at the
Post-Compulsory education levels that supported the development of design
decision-making processes. A case study was selected to examine the
curriculum development process that occurred in identifying skills and
processes for design decision-making. A four-phase evaluation process based
on Stufflebeam's Context, Input, Process and Product (CIPP) evaluation
model (Madaus et al., 1983) was used. The study was designed to draw upon
the knowledge and experiences of designers, design and technology educators
and to involve students and teachers in the curriculum development process in
a practical context. Results of the study, which included a process of learning for design and
technology education and the relationship of items within the process,
focussed on characteristics of design evaluation for design and technology
education — the V-, A-, L-, U-, E-, D- Model which utilised an interactive
assessment process within the design decision-making process. The study's
findings would be relevant to curriculum designers and professionals in the
design and technology teaching/learning area.
