N.P.P. (1996). Managing curricular innovation. New York: Cambridge
book provides researchers, teacher educators and teachers
with a comprehensive overview of the theory and practice of
managing curricular innovation. Based on a synthesis of issues
and problems that have affected the design, implementation
and maintenance of language aid programs and five innovative
syllabuses developed in both developed and under-developed
countries, the author proposes a theoretical framework for
understanding the management of change in language education.
He then illustrates how these theoretical principles have
been used to to organize a project in curricular innovation
at a US university. Based on this case study, he then proposes
nine principles which language teaching professionals may
use to guide their own attempts at managing educational innovation.
