ABSTRACT
The article focuses on curriculum management by design. Curriculum is concerned with three areas of instruction: man's perceptions of realities which have become known as the academic disciplines; human processes; and human attitudes and values expounded, accepted, and denied by society. A three-dimensional curriculum model has been proposed that can be utilized to help regain control and to provide a frame of reference of managing or developing the curriculum. The model suggests fresh responsibilities for staff and curriculum planners.
