Curriculum, as distinct from the narrower term learning, is concerned with forming the person (values, dispositions, social relationships) as well as building capacities, abilities, achievements. In the past half-century global developments have significantly influenced national and regional curriculum activities on both fronts: by Millennial Goals and projects related to a ‘global citizen’; and by the pervasive influence of OECD-led assessments and rankings as authoritative measures of what is being achieved. At the same time, recent curriculum reforms in different countries suggest tensions in the resulting reforms: for example, a concern to build stronger national identifications in the context of global pressures; and a desire for new global ‘21st century skills’ coming up against audit culture conservative testing regimes, and the problem of what are the real foundations for knowledge today. The lecture will illustrate the tensions outlined by reference to the new national curriculum framework being developed in Australia
