The Tyler Model of Curriculum Development, created by Ralph Tyler in the 1940s, stands as a foundational framework for curriculum design and is widely utilized by educators in America and beyond. Originally outlined in his book “Basic Principles of Curriculum and Instruction,” Tyler aimed to provide principles for curriculum creation rather than a rigid, lockstep model.

Kerr’s model of curriculum development, introduced in 1972, represents an advancement over Tyler’s earlier model. It acknowledges that evolving concepts, knowledge, and teaching methods continually shape the curriculum and its development. Notable contributions like Shulman’s Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) in 1986 and van den Akker’s Levels of the Curriculum in 2004 have significantly impacted curriculum development.
