Curriculum developers' duties include authoring academic training material and developing programs of instruction. The area in which they may be employed is not limited to education, however, and there are many research, academic, and government roles that require their own curricula. The curriculum developer's workplace may vary significantly depending on the company and position requirements; for example, it may include testing training procedures in remote areas and/or textbook writing within a company office. Curriculum developers may work directly with colleagues in field roles to receive direct feedback, or they may work alone and make most edits and revisions through virtual feedback.
