Abstract

John Wanis Tapura explored how business studies teachers in Papua New Guinea (PNG) perceive and enact the national curriculum goals, policies, and resources in terms of place-based education aspirations. John found that teachers based their curriculum aims and practices on their lived experiences in and out of school, rather than the intentions of the national curriculum. In terms of translating curriculum policy, teachers were unfamiliar with the national curriculum statement and framework, including place-based learning. John recommended that curriculum as autobiography, teacher agency, and teacher beliefs and the teachers lived experiences of the 'place' are some important aspects of curriculum implementation with place-based learning considerations that PNG needs to support teachers to adopt for improved enacted curriculum practices.
