the curriculum


Emerald and SDGs
We support the Sustainable Development Goals

In any society, curricula should meet the needs of all people and aim to extend understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion to all learners. But how can we create an accessible curriculum and enable students to see themselves and their backgrounds reflected in their learning? What are the barriers? Who needs to be involved?

Join us in our ‘diversifying the curriculum’ mission to learn how, in partnership with some of our authors and experts from the community, we've been exploring this subject.

We’re inviting authors to publish with us in the field of education, so if you are working on an article or would like to contribute a blog or commentary then we’d love to hear from you.

For 2022 we are focusing on Indigenous communities, commissioning content on issues such as stewardship, health and wellbeing, diversifying the curriculum, and diversity within the boardroom. Find out more.

This mission supports our Quality education for all goal.
