Term Definition
planning

the formal process of making decisions about the future. At teacher level it involves preparing teaching programmes and associated resources and assessment. At institutional level it may involve decisions about such things as future objectives priorities budgeting staffing resources and investment. Educational bodies of all sorts would typically plan around central issues of curriculum  pedagogy and assessment although other pressures would inevitably have to be faced also.
