By some definitions, the curriculum is the sum total of all learning experiences students have in a given college or program.
In this consultation, we have used a more limited definition, since our aim is to give primary attention to the courses we offer in TEE.
However, it is critically important to realise that students are learning from all the experiences they have in any college, school, or TEE program. The context and the structures of our program convey their own para-messages. (Para = alongside) We always have both an explicit and an implicit curriculum. The question is whether we are aware of our implicit, or ‘hidden’ curriculum, and whether this supports or undermines our explicit curriculum.
